LTC Steve Russell, JD Johannes and Brian Bennett
Yeah we are at it again. We launched three correspondents to Iraq this past Friday and they are in Baghdad scheming to head to interesting places.
LTC Steve Russell was Commander of the Battalion that helped develop the intel and secure the location where Saddam was captured. He was elected to the Oklahome State Senate and will be sworn in after this trip. JD Johannes produced the amazing documentary Outside the Wire and I have in my hand a pre-release version of his newest work, which I will review this week. JD only needs to sell 600 more DVDs and Outside the Wire will have made more than Brian De Palma's excremental Redacted. Brian Bennett served as TIME's Baghdad Bureau Chief and now works independently. He was with LTC Russell during many interesting parts of his time in combat.
