Aaron Glantz was an unembedded reporter in Iraq for Pacifica and Free Speech Radio News after the fall of Saddam. During his time there he saw a side of the country, the people and the war that was missed by most mainstream journalists who were largely confined to their hotels, and only ventured out accompanied by armed guards.

Glantz shares his experiences and his view on the American occupation in his new book, How America Lost Iraq. Paul interviewed Glantz during a stop on his DIY book tour. In this week's program we hear the first part of this interview, where Glantz explains how he did his reporting and what daily life was like in occupied Iraq.
