Appreciation for John K. Cooley
The longtime Monitor correspondent distinguished himself in the Middle East.
We're sorry to report that longtime Monitor correspondent John K. Cooley has passed on. John distinguished himself in the Middle East, where from the 1950s onward he reported on virtually every movement and conflict in that region – from Algeria to Afghanistan, from the rise of Arab nationalism to the Sept. 11 attacks. He later worked for ABC News and as an opinion writer. He's the author of several books, including "Green March, Black September: The Story of the Palestinian Arabs," and his latest, "Currency Wars."
