is in this poignant memory.
Chris Allbritton has a ton of new stuff, including a link to a Time piece by colleague Michael Ware detailing Iran’s role in screwing up Iraq. (Also note that the guy who set us up the bomb in Beirut, killing a couple hundred Marines, is now their freakin’ defense minister. Axis of Evil makes more sense as time goes on, y’all.)
Allbritton’s coming from a different perspective than me, but puts out some fascinating writing.
For more than a week, I’ve been trying to finish the Battle for Mosul Part IV. Meanwhile, the battle for Mosul is still on. Writing about this war takes a back seat to living it.
I miss guys like Michael Kelly and Steven Vincent…
