BAGHDAD HOSPITAL: INSIDE THE RED ZONE.
Has anyone seen this documentary? I stumbled across it today on HBO. While I only caught the last 20 minutes of it, what I saw was almost beyond words.
It is the story of an Iraqi doctor named Omer Salih Mahdi who works in the emergency room at Al-Yarmouk hospital in Baghdad.
He takes you inside a hospital that has deplorable conditions. The staff is exhausted and drained. Iraqis are in and out of the ER with wounds from IEDs and being caught in the middle of sectarian violence. You see Iraqis who are just extremely fed up with the whole situation.
