Special Satellite Video Briefing on Reconstruction in Iraq

On Friday, October 19, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT), representatives from the Provincial Reconstruction Teams in the Anbar Province, Muthanna Province and Wasit Province will brief reporters at the Department of State via a satellite video conference on reconstruction progress in Iraq. This will be an on-the-record, on-camera briefing.

Kristin Hagerstrom, Team Leader, PRT Anbar (Camp Ramadi), Wade Weems, Team Leader, PRT Wasit and Paul O’Friel, Team Leader, PRT Muthanna, will discuss current activities taking place in each province. Reporters will be seated in the State Department’s Press Briefing Room, Room 2209; the video feed of the briefing will be of broadcast quality, barring technical difficulties.

Media representatives may attend this briefing upon presentation of the following: (1) a U.S. Government-issued media identification card (Department of State, White House, Congress, Department of Defense, or Foreign Press Center), (2) a media-issued photo identification card, or (3) a letter from their employer on letterhead verifying their employment as a journalist, accompanied by an official photo identification (driver’s license or passport).

Note: This feed will have the raw backhaul from Iraq only and not the interaction from the State Department Briefing Room. If broadcasters have questions or concerns, contact DOS Studio Master Control at 202/647-6806.
