My previous post mentions Paul Rieckhoff where it should probably mention Scott Ritter. I had originally misattributed that statement here, though I made the change before posting at Smirking Chimp. Nonetheless, Rieckhoff saw his name here at the KIAV and e-mailed me, offering a signed copy of his book, Chasing Ghosts: Failures and Facades in Iraq: A Soldier’s Perspective.
I wrote back to Paul and told him I thought my reference to him was in error. He LOL’d and said he’d send it anyway. As anyone who has heard him appear on radio and/or the television machine might suspect: Paul Rieckhoff is cool.
