Heating Up in Baghdad
As I'm sure many of you have read in the press, things are definitely heating up here in Baghdad. It seems every night when I leave my office I can hear the steady clack-clack of small arms fire. The car bomb at the Commando Compound over a mile away blew out some of the windows in our palace. And yesterday an IED that hit a US convoy was so powerful that it flipped over a 50,000 lb Bradley fighting vehicle. The terrorists are attacking hot and heavy to justify a delay of the January 30th elections. Lets hope they don't succeed.
