Jonathan Landay, a national security correspondent for Reuters, and John Walcott, a former Reuters editor, were part of the team covering the war in Iraq that broke from the popular narrative of weapons of mass destruction. Instead, they reported on the lack of consensus about the existence of WMDs. Their award-winning work, recognized for its accuracy, is the subject of "Shock and Awe," a new film by Rob Reiner.
