Moore, was an attempt at collecting data from a couple of the sites, it set the groundwork for projects.

Bab Al-Sharqi

Bab Al-Sharqi is a neighborhood of central Baghdad, Iraq. The area surrounding Bab Al-Sharqi market is a stronghold of the Mahdi Army, the main Shia militia in central Iraq.. This Shi'a neighborhood saw some of the most intense sectarian fighting during Operation Iraqi Freedom, it continued to be plagued by routine attacks as late as 2016. Bab al-Sharqi is located on the east bank near the Jumhuriya Bridge, it is directly across the river from the Ministry of Planning, Ministry of Information and the Green Zone. On 22 January 2007 two powerful car bombs ripped through the Bab Al-Sharqi market in Baghdad, killing at least 88 people and wounding 160 others in one of the bloodiest insurgent attacks of Operation Iraqi Freedom; the attack coincided with the arrival of 3,200 additional troops into Baghdad as part of the troop surge of 2007. Only three months after the devastating attack, Senator Lindsey Graham complained that the media was not giving the American people "the full picture of what's going on here."

Though he stayed within the secured Green Zone, traveled outside the Green Zone only with a armed military escort, he unabashedly told reporters of the "signs of success" he witnessed on his visit to Bab al-Sharqi: We went to the market and were just warmly welcomed. I bought five rugs for five bucks, and people were engaging, just a few weeks ago, hundreds of people, dozens of people were killed in this same place. 19 people were killed and 28 wounded when two bombs went off in Baghdad's Bab al-Sharqi district
