Hunting Al Qaeda 3

Michael Yon's posts are notable in that they are grounded in the reality they describe, rich in detail and clear. Part 3 of Hunting Al Qaeda has the first two attributes, but does not leave you with a neat picture. There's a good reason for this: it narrates a battle, one that, like so many in that environment, springs upon him after hours of heat-tortured tedium. It's absolutely gripping.
