FROM THIS EPISODE

Contributing editor Nancy Updike went to Iraq last year to try to figure out what it's like to be a private citizen working in the middle of a war zone. Private contractors are a part of this war in unprecedented numbers, but we don't know that much about the people doing these jobs - why they chose to come to Iraq, and what they're seeing that we can't. Nancy's story won a Scripps Howard National Journalism Award this year; she got support from HearingVoices.com, which gets funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
