Instapundit brings us this report from an arab embedded reporter that to me show two things, one intentional, and one not:

  • The US armed forces aren't bloodthirsty killers, and the marines might be crazy, but they have a good heart.
  • Journalists with no combat training have no business in a combat zone, and the embed program was far more about keeping their heads attached to their shoulders than it ever was about controlling the news.

You have to read between the lines to understand point 2, but that's to be expected from the keepers of our freedom.

A journalist joins the embed program and has no intention of seeing any of the fighting.

Isn't that sort of like joining the army and not expecting to go to war?
