I happened upon some discussions of the latest outbreak of fighting in Iraq over atInstapundit.com. The view seems to be that the plans of al Sadr and the Baathists in Falluja are calculated to have as much impact on the TV watching public as they are on the soldiers they are fighting.
If that is the case, two can play at this game. I say it is time to call all of those embedded reports back into active duty. The more eyes on the scene, the more difficult manipulation becomes.
