Anchors Reflect On 10 Years Of War In Iraq

As we reported this week the war in Iraq turned 10 this week. TV news anchors and correspondents who were there have been reflecting on the coverage.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer recalls retreating to a bunker with a gas mask during a scare:

ABC’s Martha Raddatz talks to the “PBS Newshour” about her coverage:

I guess I underestimated the length of time I would be going there. It would take up such an enormous part of my life, my passion, and what was important to me. I guess I wasn’t prepared to forge the bonds that I did, I guess I didn’t think about it. I started covering the Pentagon in peacetime. It wasn’t as if I was going in with the idea of going off to war, it was a gradual thing, and in so many ways, what was happening to our military and our country of getting sucked into that war, I was too. I am proud of that work, and I am grateful for the people that I’ve met. I have seen more tragedy than I wish I’d witnessed, but from that I’ve met some amazing people.
