Iraq was no Afghanistan, where AI Jazeera had virtually acted as the" news agency of the world", as one western based newspaper put it back then, a reference to the fact the Qatar-based news network was the sole provider of news and footage from Taliban-controlled territories in Afghanistan. As war approached news reporters from all over the globe gathered in Baghdad.
