NPR's Liane Hansen speaks with Los Angeles Times reporter Tony Perry, who wrote this past week about his dismal accommodations in Fallujah, Iraq. The Marines commandeered an apartment building from local Shiites and allowed Perry to live there. This gave Perry a unique insight into the living habits of lower-class Iraqis under Saddam Hussein's rule.
