Building on the success of Blogging Baghdad , we're launching the World Blog to continue providing insight and comments from NBC News correspondents and producers around the world, in addition to Iraq.
This blog will feature the best NBC correspondents and producers from the Mideast region and elsewhere, offering unique insights and analysis on breaking news and trends from Beijing to Beirut and beyond.
As Richard Engel, NBC News Middle East Correspondent and a frequent contributor to Blogging Baghdad explains, "Expanding Blogging Baghdad makes total sense and is completely appropriate. Just as the war in Iraq is expanding beyond the borders, I think the way we cover the war in Iraq must think beyond the confines of the borders of this country." Read Richard's debut entry here: "Dangers of the Baghdad plan."
NBC News President Steve Capus also noted today, "This is simply a natural extension of the outstanding journalism we've already seen from NBC News correspondents around the world. Given the overwhelming audience reaction to "Blogging Baghdad" there is clearly an appetite for this kind of in-depth analysis and reporting from our international bureaus."
So, please bookmark this link and continue to give us your feedback through your comments. The link to Blogging Baghdad will remain active as an archive of the blogs from the last year, but all future posts from Baghdad will appear in the World Blog.
