Off Point: A Deployed Soldier Talks About Iraq

While I watch Bloggingheads.tv often the three rules of this blog (civility, no politics, civility) mean that you probably will not see me link to it again. Nevertheless, I think that this video interview with an embedded reporter and the commander of the US unit he's embedded with is very interesting, not particularly political, and something I'd recommend to everyone.

The Major uses military speak, but I think most of it is comprehensible. He also says "Sir" a lot but that's just an ingrained response which the military drills into soldiers dealing with unknown civilians. All-in-all, it's an interesting view of what's going on on the ground.
