NCPR Home Iraq Diary: A Raid on an Insurgent Suspect

Cpl. Bill Putnam
The New York Times reports 4 of 18 provinces in the country are still not safe enough for people to vote. One of those provinces is Baghdad, where Army photojournalist Corporal Bill Putnam is stationed with the 122nd Mobile Public Affairs Detachment. Troops frequently conduct raids to find insurgent leaders. Putnam went on one raid last month in the Al-Rashid neighborhood of Baghdad. Soldiers were looking for a suspected cell leader of Sunni insurgents. Email this story to a friend!
