Al Jazeera English reports on the endless Iraq war

i've watched bits and pieces of this on al jazeera and was glad to see they posted it... my sense is that it's reasonably objective and, based on what i've learned from being the news junkie i am, pretty accurate... and, of course, it offers a perspective you simply won't find on u.s. domestic news outlets...

just for your info, al jazeera english posts most of its special features and even a fair chunk of its regular news programs on youtube here... since, to my knowledge, most u.s. cable and satellite tv services don't carry it, it's a good way of staying in touch with what they're putting out there...

don't get me wrong... i'm not claiming that they have any more of a grasp on "the truth" than any other news outlet... the value in watching them, i've found, is that it forces me to look at things from a different angle, and also puts stuff in front of my face that, spun or not, i simply didn't know about...
