Iraqi Scoops the Times

Iraqi blogger Zeyad writes from Baghdad about today’s massive anti-terrorism demonstrations.

The rallies today proved to be a major success. I didn’t expect anything even close to this. It was probably the largest demonstration in Baghdad for months. It wasn’t just against terrorism. It was against Arab media, against the interference of neighbouring countries, against dictatorships, against Wahhabism, against oppression, and of course against the Ba’ath and Saddam.

I haven’t seen anything (yet?) in the mainstream media about this, so go read Zeyad. He has one of the best scoops in the world right now, including photos, and he’s doing it from Iraq for free.
