E-mail, from a professor at military-related institution:
Re. your NRO post on Fallujah. I just received an astounding PowerPoint (what else) presentation from one of my former students who currently commands a brigade in Iraq. The insurgents used 60 of the Mosques as fighting positions and weapons caches during the battle – that’s 3 of every 5 Mosques in the city. 653 IEDs were found and detonated by coalition forces – 11 IED “factories” were also found, not to mention the slaughter houses and just run-of-the-mill weapons stockpiles.
Where’s the media in all this? Or, how about a better question: Where is our information offensive?”
