Turning the tide in Anbar

By Rick Morris

Michael Yon is one of the foremost milbloggers writing today. Having written extensively from the front lines in Iraq over the past few years, he is greatly qualified to assess how our civilian leadership and their followers at the top of the military failed us in the years prior to 2007 and what are our remaining chances for success -- which must now be defined in the narrow sense of not leaving behind an Afghanistan-like Disney World for terrorists. In Part I of his new series, The Ghosts of Anbar, he sets the stage for his latest trip to Anbar by narrating the events of the past few years. It's great writing by one of the few journalists anywhere truly qualified to opine about the state of the war and I recommend it highly.
