Baghdad Bombing Video

BAGHDAD BOMBING VIDEO….Via Josh Marshall, CBS News has some video from a cameraman who was inside the UN building in Baghdad when the bomb went off. It’s about five minutes long and not for the squeamish, but if you want to know what it’s like being in the middle of a suicide bombing, this is (hopefully) as close as you’ll ever get.

To view it, go to the CBS News site and then click on “CBS News camera captures explosion, aftermath” at the top left of the page. If the link is gone, click here to go directly to the video. You’ll need the RealMedia player to watch it.

UPDATE: Thanks to Chris K in comments for the direct link to the video.
