The war you didn't see

A soldier's commentary on his experience in Iraq, well worth reading.....even though it's in today's LA Times, it's still informative and certainly a condemnation of the media coverage of the war.

The money quote at the end:
While I was in Iraq, I read Walter Isaacson's remarkable biography, "Benjamin Franklin: An American Life." I was reminded of the passion and determination of our founding fathers, and of the long years they experienced between independence and the founding of the government we enjoy today. Franklin and company recognized the importance of having a fully informed American constituency involved in making the decisions of government.

When it comes to Iraq, in my experience, that constituency is poorly served.
