The rule of law

Fantastic story from Michael Yon about the arrest of a popular Iraqi general, who had made his name fighting Al-Queda in Anbar Province, but who had succumbed to the temptations of power. The people of the area wanted him arrested but didn't dare do it. A certain Ltc Crissman of Task Force 2-7 Infantry stepped in, averting a massacre in the process. Very intelligent and sensitive work.

You don't get this sort of thing in the mainstream media. You do get it from Michael Yon, Bill Roggio and Michael Totten. They deserve all our support.
