Photographer John Moore on Libya Battles, Arab World Revolutions

Photographer John Moore is no stranger to combat. As a member of an Associated Press team in 2005, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography for coverage of the war in Iraq and he's done extended stints in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico and Nicaragua and elsewhere in the last 20 years.

Yet despite his relative comfort with being on the frontlines, Moore told the NewsHour from his hotel room in Cairo that his latest assignment -a six-week trip that took him to the uprisings in Egypt, Bahrain and Libya - might have been his most dangerous. Moore recorded the interview for us after sneaking out of Benghazi, Libya en route back to his home in Denver.

  • I wonder how he manages to stay safe in those areas? These guys are truly brave they are in the same combat zones as the troops but they have no weapons other than a camera. That earns my respect big time

  • John you should know that everything you have filmed is part of a US Zionist conspiracy even if you have found out that this is not the case, we dont care about the truth as long as it is blamed on a US Zionist conspiracy. I had a large turd come out my ass last week and it took ages to come out, I blamed this on a US Zionist conspiracy to make me sit on the throne for longer than I really needed too so they could blow up the world and blame it on every other cunt rather than themselves.
