The original intro:
Among the believers: an Australian journalist
penetrates the Iraqi jihad and finds himself the
insurgents latest pipeline to the international press.

live in Iraq right now. It takes a stunning kind to put
your life in the hands of people who kidnap and kill
Journalist Michael Ware, a correspondent for "Time"
