Hello pcventures -
Christopher Dickey travels within the Middle East and Europe, and is
sometimes in Baghdad. He is Middle East Regional Editor for Newsweek,
while their Baghdad Bureau Chief is Rod Nordland. Dickey is also
Newsweek Bureau Chief in Paris, where he and his wife have their home.
The information below is ordered by date. I have tried to exclude
anything which does not make a clear statement about location, even
when that meant cutting out pieces with a strong suggestion of place:
for example, scene-setting descriptions of France or Baghdad.
"A couple of times in the last week I?ve searched through the ?305
Guest House.? The West Germans built the mansion and the luxury bunker
beneath it for Saddam Hussein in 1984."
Dickey reports from France
June 27 2003
"In Baghdad today, Ahmed Kamel Mohammed, the deputy director of the
museum, walked us through the list of the missing masterpieces."

" . . . here in Iraq, where I am now"
Dickey in Kansas
"But I'm sure that when I go back to Baghdad in a few weeks I, for
one, won't be carrying a gun. Nor do I expect I'll be going most
places with armed bodyguards. I'm one of those old-timers who
believes, after 25 years covering wars here and there, that judgment,
wit and luck usually are the best protection. Most reporting,
especially in war zones, depends on empathy, whether with soldiers or
civilians, victors or victims. And nothing works against empathy more
than a gun."
"Christopher Dickey is a correspondent for Newsweek magazine based in
Paris. He returns to Iraq in ten days time."

"Join Christopher Dickey--live from Davos, Switzerland--on Thursday
Jan. 22 at noon ET to discuss how world leaders feel about Iraq and
the Mideast . . "
Dickey describes "threading" his way through Baghdad streets "this morning".

"Christopher Dickey: Hello. I'm travelling right now in Casablanca,
investigating recent terrorist attacks here and in Europe, but the
central focus of my reporting for the last two years has been Iraq,
the war and the occupation."

Describing a recent experience at CDG airport in Paris
June 17, 2004
"The Paris Bureau of NEWSWEEK is moving, and we?ve been cleaning out
our files. I?m surrounded by boxes of books, discarded papers, carbon
copies of ancient memos."

There are certainly some articles which were not written in Baghdad
but do carry the picture you describe, although Dickey could argue
that in his writing he is often frank about being elsewhere.
Sometimes he credits colleagues with additional reporting. For
example, an article he wrote in July 2003 says "With Scott Johnson,
Rod Nordland and Colin Soloway in Baghdad, Michael Hirsh and Richard
Wolffe in Washington and Tamara Lipper traveling with the president."
Of his more recent articles with *that picture*, this is how I
interpret his location:
May 20 - Amman
June 1 - unclear, possibly France
June 9 - no clues about location
June 17 - Paris
June 22 - Paris
June 29 - Paris
Of course, this is just a snapshot of a few weeks in May and June.
I hope this helps, but please let me know if I can clarify anything.
Best Wishes - Leli
