Bob Woodruff and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, were injured in an IED attack near Taji, Iraq today. They were embedded with the 4th Infantry Division, traveling with an Iraqi Army unit in an Iraqi mechanized vehicle. Bob and Doug are in serious condition and are being treated at a U.S. military hospital in Iraq. At this point, we don’t know much more than this. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more. I know that all of us will keep Bob, Doug, and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
