Printed in Baghdad and distributed throughout Iraq, the newspaper reported on a variety of issues affecting life during the rebuilding of the country. The Bulletin had the stated purpose of "questioning and debating the process and progress of Iraq's redevelopment" post-Saddam It strived to overcome an information blackout in Iraq suffered by an increasingly large community of aid workers, journalists and American and British officials as well as Iraqi English speakers.
The newspaper had a full-time reporting pool of Iraqis and Westerners, many of whom were young Oxbridge graduates who had previously written for Associated Press, the New York Times, The Washington Post, Reuters and the Evening Standard. The publication believed that "the presence of a free press offering a forum for all sides is an inalienable human right."
It aimed to remain non-partisan and provided a forum for an eclectic range of guest writers to debate issues related to the redevelopment of the country. The format was a mix of news and features, with the first edition focusing on issues such as the gun amnesty, the true extent of crime, and the dilapidated state of Baghdad's electricity supply.
