The Toppling, My New Story, in the New Yorker

My new story, which reconstructs the toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad’s Firdos Square on April 9, 2003, is in The New Yorker. It’s a lengthy article that I’ve worked on for quite a while, with support from ProPublica and the Shorenstein Center on the Press. As a companion of sorts to the story, I’ve created a new section of my website that is a collection of photos, videos, documents and links related to the article; just click here to visit it.
