Michael Ware has been in Iraq reporting the war since the very beginning, if I’m not mistaken. He clearly understands the issues. First, the good news, there is some progress with the Surge. Second, the bad news, Baghdad is still not even close to being safe for Iraqis let alone Americans. Finally, Mr. Ware responds to the Drudge Report (Drudge wins a bronze for the worst person in the world).

According to Crooks and Liars, Drudge has taken down the original post. No apology has just to be posted. I’ll check in the morning.
