Look!! Ease up on this guy. The public has a right to know what is going on. This is not just about protecting marines. It is about the pure horror of war. Must admit I am shocked by the vitriol you are heaping on this reporter. Would you rather that the public knew nothing about shooting people in sacred places or the unlawful torturing of prisoners? You Americans think it is all about "our boys over there". It is not. Others may think it is about imposing your fundamentally flawed version of "democracy" by force. On a country with fiercely proud traditions that date back centuries. I can assure you that the people of Falluja without water, power, food medical supplies do not feel "liberated". They feel trampled on.

Kevin - You are doing amazing work. We hear about the troops being under-resourced, about families here shipping body armor to their sons/daughters in Iraq, and about Humvees protected with plywood. What are your observations?

Travel safe
