Hitchcock & the Baghdad PD

Totten in Baghdad:

This is what it is like most nights during counter-insurgency warfare. Its like were Baghdad PD, one soldier put it. It isnt always open war and explosions and bang-bang. Much of it entails patient police work and the chasing of ghosts....

The Iraqi counter-insurgency would be a hard war to film accurately. Most of the time its so quiet. But its the quiet of an Alfred Hitchcock movie, not of rural Middle America.

Read the rest.

Bonus: Is the New York Times about to concede that we just might win in Iraq?
