How did Rod Nordland--who now covers Syria and Lebanon for the Times--cover Iraq during the war

"FP: How often do you travel outside of the Green Zone?

RN: The restrictions on [journalists] movements are very severe. It is extremely dangerous to move around anywhere in Iraq, but we do. We all have Iraqi staff who get around, and we go on trips arranged by the U.S. State Department as frequently as we can.""  (thanks Joseph)
