Recap of WP interviews with Mohammed Hayawi of Baghdad

The Washington Post has been interviewing Iraqi bookseller Mohammed Hayawi every couple of months since late 2002. They have an interesting review article up summarising his views on the US invasion, the subsequent occupation and the elections of February. Its a little dramatic, but hey gotta have a catchy 'angle':
In interviews every few months, beginning before the U.S. invasion in March 2003, Hayawi, now 41, has watched the fate of his country unfold with fear that turned to anger, and resentment that melted into resignation, bound together by a resilience that is perhaps this country's defining trait. Resilience can mean many things -- fatalism, endurance, persistent hope and an ability to make the unusual normal.
