She arrived in Baghdad six months before the 2003 U.S. invasion, stayed during the U.S. bombing campaign and continued to cover Iraq for the next six years. The Peabody-Award-winning journalist shares experiences from her book “Putin Country: A Journey into the Real Russia” and chats with SPR’s Doug Nadvornick on stage at the Bing.
