His country, Australia, neither redeemed him nor officially recognized he had not acted against the spirit but in the spirit of the Olympic Games.

The protagonists are often a composite of people the author met during his career travelling the world as a foreign correspondent. Australia, December 13, 4.

The mission quickly turns into a brutal encounter with local officials. The reports of the worst day at Fukushima hadn't broken yet. But John, our cameraman, producer Claire and I already knew something was wrong. Dust and wreckage were flying around us. Lines of cars were jamming roads with people trying to flee. Our German fixer was making ominous sounds about radiation danger. All the while we were huddled over our laptop satellite, sending out our story.
But I think the two of us were the first to note what became the scene-stealer moment of the day: The appearance of Pippa Middleton's unique form-fitting Maid of Honor dress. As we stood next to the low-rent compound where the Navy Seals blew him away, one could only think how it all could have happened, how the West could have been so in the thrall of a bearded man Other kinds of "uprisings" erupted in which in any other year would've been the lead story. So there I was with another cameraman, Pierre, in the streets of Athens, equipped as if we were in the invasion of Fallujah all over again, dodging chunks of ancient marble, ducking away from Molotov cocktails, and fighting through pungent tear gas.

Which brings us again to the last weeks of this year and closure on a few fronts. When things got hairy for women reporters covering new turmoil in Egypt we were called back into action. That gave me the chance of having the memorable experience of meeting again the man who helped save our lives in February in an apartment over Tahrir Square.
Then it was on to Iraq for the final pull-out of American forces. Shutting down the Fox Bureau there was Frank, our retiring logistics chief, who has been so integral to our coverage over the years.
Into the Field: A Foreign Correspondent's Notebook by Tracy Dahlby
We basically moved in, lived there, and gave up our other lives. The fighting became our existence. Now we were out in the streets of Baghdad again no replay of the suicide blasts we'd endured during those brutal early days of the war. The legacy of this long grinding effort.
The most memorable stories of the year, as told by Washington Post foreign correspondents
After the obit and some hastily-recounted commentary, we were off again, to cover the Asian nuclear powder keg which has also held our attention.
