Sorry to tell you that the WWE was not in the heart of Baghdad when shit was hitting the fan. They were not allowed to start going to Iraq until things had calmed down a great deal and Baghdad was no longer considered a hot zone. Granted there was some danger, but nothing like what they portrayed it to be when they first went over there. The military wouldn't allow them to be there until Baghdad was secured and considered a "Green Zone", secure safe area.
As I stated in the other thread, I'm a former Marine that has been to both places and was injured in Iraq and medically retired due to the injuries I sustained. I think it is absolutely a great thought on Dana's part, but it is nowhere near worth the risk to the fighters and considering there is really nowhere in Afghanistan that is considered a "Green Zone" the military can't afford to allow the soldiers to get too complacent. Like I said it is a great thought, but definitely something that needs to be put on hold and thought out more until things are calmed down a whole lot more there.
