it was ok

I like his writing style, and probably would agree with many of his assessments of the war...but much of what he wrote came across as so clearly biased that it was hard to take it as seriously as I wanted to. The stories all pointed in the same direction, and lacked depth altogether. Little potshots at the competence of the administration or the intelligence of soldiers weren't helpful. Perhaps this is really just what he experienced in his two weeks in Iraq, but I doubt it - reality has more nuance and more depth, and no set of experiences over a two week period would so clearly reinforce one's personal view of a situation like these stories do.
