ishmael beah, child soldier

This is an interview with Ishmael Beah, the author of A Long Way Gone. It's an autobiographical look at the life of a child soldier in Sierra Leone. I recently happened to read it, and I was struck by the fact that a good friend of mine who was born in Sierra Leone, Ishmael, and I are all exactly the same age. The interviewer, Josh Rushing, is also a personal favorite of mine; he's one of those excellent wildcat correspondents that Al Jazeera seems to attract.
