Armed journalists in Iraq
Opinio Juris has a posting on journalists applying for gun permits in Iraq (sounds like a plan to me!) and disputing the International News Safety Institute's claim that packing in self-defense might lose them Geneva Convention protections. (The protective value of which lies in ... oh, having the INSI issue an open letter condemning your decapitation).
