Oh that is great. I'm a fan of Hugh's show so I'll be listening.
Chester,Fantastic interview. On the poor slob who made an international scene by getting caught on tape taking more care for his own safety than for the enemy's ...I know a career Marine pilot who served as a FAC in the first gulf war ... he has told me of an incident in which a group of Iraqis approached his unit to surrender, but as they got close shots rang out and struck their Humvee. They felt they had no choice but to cut everybody down. For the record, I don't feel in any way that either of these Marines did anything wrong. Unfortunate, maybe, but understandable and unavoidable.

defense dept briefing from today. Assuming that you have not read it.http://www.defenselink.mil/transcripts/2004/tr20041115-1602.htmlsome more positive quotes:"In fact, I was over there just a few hours ago with young Marines that -- one of them had a bullet hole in his leg, and he said, "Hey, it didn't hit a bone, Colonel. Do you think I can go back?"I said, "Well, I'll leave that to the doc." "Of the 320 [US forces]that were wounded in [Fallujah], we have 134 that were returned to duty.""Had another Marine that had a bullet hole in his arm. He says, "I'm going back. They'll just put some stitches in this." And the Iraqis feel the exact same way. Guys that have stitches, they know they can't stay on the battlefield because of infection, so they're only returned for just a few days." "Right now we believe we're in the third phase of this operation. Third phase is really where we had to take the city, clear it of anti-coalition, anti-Iraqi forces, and we're well into the final stages of phase three"plenty more there thanks again for your work I have read The Atlantic Monthly just to hear your response.tag
