Washington Post blogger Joel Achenbach was my guest today —The Scratching Post live blogged the interview— and the transcript is up at Radioblogger. He seems like a very nice guy, and Lileks swears he’s a very talented humorist, but he seems surprised that people take seriously what he writes about the war.
He agreed to come back next week. That’s a point in his favor. Defensiveness about questions isn’t, but that may fade. There aren’t any trick questions, just bad answers.
UPDATE: Or, no answers at all.
And the best blog post of all on Zarqawi’s death is here. It would be a good practice for all bloggers to consult at least a couple of the milblogs before opining on military matters.
