go to “for the media” you’ll find all the contacts you need there.

Contact CPIC in Iraq. You’ll have to submit a packet and more than likely be sponsored by a bonafide news agency.

I’m still trying to embed, but unfortunately can’t make any contact with nobody at CPIC.
My e-mails are returning and no one answers by phone…

That’s fine for me. I think it’s gonna be better for both of us. We really can talk about that.
I’m thinking to go on March, if i could schedule my embed until there…
What do you think about?
