Last week, BBC correspondent Martin Asser described a taxi ride through the Gaza Strip emphasizing IDF checkpoints and the hardships they cause ordinary Palestinians (he didn’t acknowledge the army’s fight against Palestinian terror). This week, Beeb road warriors in Iraq reported that a cab ride from Baghdad to the city’s airport is the world’s most dangerous drive ($5,100 fare gives you two cars and several heavily armed bodyguards). Don’t miss the previous adventures of the Beeb’s road warriors in Gaza. Next up: a ride through Boston’s scandal-ridden “Big Dig.”
