Real Stuff From Iraq

Army Captain Phil Carter, now home in Los Angeles after serving in Iraq, has a very good blog about his military experience and the situation in Iraq.
An explanation - dated 6.27.2007 - of "the surge" from Australian army officer Dave Kilcullen, adviser to Gen. David Petraeus in Baghdad, is the shortest and simplest description of the strategy behind the new tactic.
Whether the surge is successful or not, it's the kind of clear info we should be getting from policy-makers along the way.
