Imperial Life in the Emerald City

Did anyone catch Rajiv Chandrasekaran on The Daily Show last night?

The former Baghdad Bureau Chief for the Washington Post was on plugging his new book Imperial Life in the Emerald City. Chandrasekaran talked about the “post-conflict reconstruction” efforts of the U.S. government in Iraq–specifically about life in the heavily guarded “Green Zone,” which houses the Coalitional Provisional Authority.

Chandrasekaran, originally from northern California, is a Stanford graduate. He became the first Asian American to hold the position of assistant managing editor at the Washington Post –when offered the spot last year.

Here’s the first part of the interview (and here’s the rest).
