I have never heard an enlisted man say anything nice about the media, (but) I have heard them say, out of nowhere, "I hate the bleeping media," and I'm thinking, where did that come from and I hope it wasn't directed at me (laughs). But, I don't think it was. They were on friendly terms with me by the time they were saying things like that. The "enlisteds" will tell you that the media are doing a very bad job in Iraq. Now, the officers, the higher you get in the ranks, get more and more political. But, the lower officers will also tell you the same thing.

I've never heard an officer, high or low have anything nice to say about the media in Iraq. Oh, I've heard them say things about the media, but never anything very complimentary. ;-)

This reporter, however, seems more honest and grounded than the majority of them.

My God, to think about a broad daylight entrance into Ramadi down Route Michigan six months ago, people would have thought you were crazy. You would have gotten a discharge from the military for suggesting it. Now it's routine.

Funny we have to get this from Human Events and not say, the NYT.

Yea, I know...

Poor Michael Fumento, he's in trouble now. He violated Urinalistic Protocol; he's pooh-poohing the bar-stool "Pros" and doing his job the real way, the right way, on the ground reporting the truth. < / editorilizing
