9780143038160: Babylon by Bus: Or, the True Story of Two Friends Who Gave Up Their Valuable Franchise Selling Yankees Suck T-Shirts at Fenway to Find Meaning and ... They Lacked Qualification and Witnessed...

This all-access, inside-out view of what the American occupation of Iraq really looks like on the ground is the story of two young Americans who went to Baghdad without any real plan and discovered they weren't the only ones. Underqualified but ingenious, Ray and Jeff found work with the Coalition Provisional Authority providing humanitarian aid to the Iraqi people amid an appalling atmosphere of corruption, incompetence, and horror. Gritty and irreverent, this is a wild ride inside the Red Zone and a strikingly original portrait of the real Iraq.

Product Description:

Babylon by Bus Neumann and Lemoiner describe how they became the "Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John MacIntyre of the Iraq War"--two young American gonzos who came to help, joined the Coalition Provisional Authority, and witnessed enough corruption, confusion, and brutality to fill the pages of a very good book.
