BAGHDADâ€”Sorry for the short notice, but I’ll be on the Democracy Now!… (In other words, in about 45 mins.) I’m supposed to respond to President Bush’s speech and give an update on what’s happening in Baghdad. Not sure where the stations are, if anyone’s interested.
While the Administration indulges in happy talk, Iraq is getting worse and worse. Just today, another Iraqi journalist was killed by American troops.
I’m on the tail end of my vacation at the moment and I’m heading back to Baghdad some time next week. After Marla’s death and the slog in Ramadi, I just didn’t feel much like blogging…. The response after the CNN blogging panel in Atlanta at the beginning of June, however, really got me ready to get back into it after a repose.
