Stories from Baghdad

I spent the last week transcribing my notes and recorded interviews from Baghdad – which came to seventy single-spaced pages in Microsoft Word – and I’ve finally organized this mass of material in a way that makes some kind of narrative sense. I would have finished this long ago had I not been invited to Israel and Lebanon, but I don’t get offers for free trips very often, and I would have been a fool to turn those opportunities down. So stay tuned for a series of long dispatches from Iraq at the end of the surge. Thanks for being patient.
