The late Washington Post publisher Philip Graham once said that journal- ism is the first draft of history. Todd S. Purdum’s A Time of Our Choosing: America’s War in Iraq, is the first draft of the history of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Months before the Department of Defense made the controversial deci- sion to embed reporters within U.S. units, Purdum was in Iraq reporting the war.
