And it's taxpayer-funded.
The saga continues.
Video overview. My column today, What we know and don't know, concludes: Or rather, death. I linked to Dan Riehl's post the other day on life for the Marines in Haditha. It's worth revisiting. I'm posting some of the photos Dan linked to from the Marine Corps site here:

The Wall Street Journal editorial page gets all huffy about the FBI raid of Democrat Rep. William Jefferson's Capitol Hill office.
