As the proud father of a soldier in the Fourth Infantry Division, I trust what the men on the ground say much more than the mainsteam media. At www.billroggio.com I find the war as seen and posted by Bill Roggio, a former active duty soldier and current blogger embedded with marines in Iraq. He offers something not often seen in the media – stories about soldiers on the job in dangerous places. He is there to report on the scene, and more important, he reports on the soldiers’ experiences. Learn how we lost western Pakistan to al-Qaeda and the Taliban, and Somalia to the Islamic Courts, and failed to subdue al-Qaeda in Ramadi and Muqtada al-Sadr.
His reports support what my son emails and phones home.
