My pal Michael Totten has another report from Iraq up on his blog, and as usual it’s an excellent combination of narrative, analysis, and photography. This anecdote is about an Iraqi police officer working with the Marines:
“His family was killed by Al Qaeda,” a Marine added helpfully. “They were killed because he’s a police officer.”
The Iraqi Police officer nodded.
“He went out all by himself and killed the people who did it,” the Marine said.
The officer nodded again.
Unreal. Read it all here and feel free to hit the man’s tip jar to support his future travels.
