a journalist training them and getting the information out would whatever possible it could mean they have it is very dangerous for the people on the ground that are doing this the government want to shut this down they want to stop information getting out and so anyone who's found to be involved with or interest in t.v. you would be in danger of being jailed or disappeared they'll go after the people that are interviewed they'll go after the fixer as well as going after the journalists or during the reporting. those tactics aren't just going to lie to the writing to a journalist i'm operating in iraq coming ever since the start of the military crackdown in august 27th seen the government on some sushi has embarked on a far reaching campaign to silence reporters local and foreign. intimidation and harassment and the weight of the law had been used some journalists to cast the government were military the badlands. case in point in december 27th seem to greeters reporters were arrested. and charged under the official secrets
