A picture named Shuster.jpg

David Shuster, NBC News correspondent was on Hardball yesterday. He is reporting the latest from Baghdad.

Iraqi forces are wearing black ski masks to hide their faces from the insurgents. Even the Iraqi's that work for NBC won't tell their families who they work for. Also the troops are getting no help from the Iraqi citizens, as insurgents seem to blend in with the population after attacks.


It's a frightening situation for our troops and the Iraq forces as more violence spreads before the election. Remember, those four provinces hold almost 40% of the population that are deemed unsafe to the voters. We can only hope that our troops remain steadfast and safe during this first election cycle.

Can you help us out?
