I just received a press release from the United Nations Correspondents Association in New York announcing that I have won the Silver Medal for Excellence in Journalism in the print category for my series of articles in September on the ongoing crisis between the United States, the European Union, the IAEA and Iran. The pieces ran under the slug 'Persian Puzzle'. I would like to thank all my readers who also wrote in with words of appreciation. The series was meant to restore some sanity to what was -- and still is -- an issue overwrought by spin. But the battle of public opinion has yet to be decisively won.
Here are the links to the series:
The Persian Puzzle I: Iran and the invention of a nuclear crisis (21 September 2005)
The Persian Puzzle II: What the IAEA really found in Iran (22 September 2005)
The Persian Puzzle III: The world must stand firm on diplomacy (23 September 2005)
The unravelling of India's Persian puzzle (27 September 2005)
