Find out more about the Al Jazeera correspondent and presenter.

    Josh Rushing

    Josh Rushing is a 14-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps who held the ranks of private through to captain.

    He gained prominence in the major motion picture documentary Control Room, which features his struggles as the United States military's lead spokesperson to the Arab world during the invasion of Iraq.

    Josh's outspoken and conscientious nature in this sensitive role - his conflicts with the Pentagon and his subsequent resignation from the Marines - as well as his regular appearances as a fresh, non-partisan, critical voice in broadcast and print media have made him among the most recognisable young media voices in America today.
