Normally I don’t discuss anything politics related here. But I can’t help but have to mention this great blog by a photographer/journalist who had been embedded with the US Army in Mosul, Iraq since beginning of this year.
Go read his entries, most of them are long but well worth the time, and see the side of the story in Iraq that you won’t normally get from the mass US media.
I started reading this blog when someone in the office emailed me about a journalist who, when shot at, picked up the rifle and shot back. It was an griping post but what has kept me going back is the story of the war as seen from the ground and how much we are not told by the media. No surprise there.
