Photographer's Note

From the Palestine Hotel, looking West over the Tigris River, you can see what used to be known as Saddam Tower - a revolving restaurant that went virtually unused since it overlooked the Iraqi Intelligence Compound. Adjacent to the tower is the bombed out remains of the Al-Mamoun Communications Center and the reason for my being here - to help restore Iraq's International telephone communications. The end of this clear and sunny November day was marked by the now familiar but, in this case, distant explosion, the resulting mushroom cloud and another one of those awe inspiring yet gut wrenching memories caught on flash.
