Terrorist Hunter

If you only read one thing this week, or this month, that I have linked to on my blog, I hope it is this. This is the story, published in Esquire, of a man who continues to put his life on the line for his country, to protect his family, and to win freedom for his people. He is Iraqi and his job is to hunt terrorists.

As someone who has supported the war in Iraq, I have felt that it was important to put a human face on what is happening there, and elsewhere. "Omar" is one of those faces, although security concerns mean that it can't be shown.

I think this article really is worth your time. So you are aware, it is lengthy, and there is a bit of profanity. I hope this helps the man earn some kind of security for his family.
