Independent Journalist Plans to Cover War from Iraq - 03/17/03 01:52 AM

Christopher Allbritton is a former Daily News reporter who publishes a weblog called http://www.back-to-iraq.com/ He plans on entering the Kurdish part of Iraq next month to cover the humanitarian issues that result from the upcoming war.

Allbritton is interested with issues on how Turkey may intervene if the Kurds try to form Kurdistan. He says he has special plans to get out if Turkey invades. He also has a gas mask and atropine in case Saddam launches a chemical attack.

Allbritton has gotten the money for this war coverage through Paypal and Amazon's "Click to Give." He plans to hitchhike using some of the proceeds and has a satellite phone to connect with the world. Some question if he has enough money to make it.
