Washington Post comes late to the party 
The Washington Post comes out with a sort of wierd look at soldiers' blogs.

Out of more than 200 blogs and blog entries they could have featured, here's what they picked:

1.) 1 post from Sgt Lizzie describing her getting her face smashed by an IED. (Sergeant Lizzie, I hate to break it to you, but you're still beautiful.)

2.) A post by Leonard Clark, who was court martialed and found guilty of publishing classified material and referred to his CO as a "glory hunter" and his command sergeant major as an "inhuman monster." (Ahhhh I wish I could be an E-4. You know, so I could know everything, too.)

3.) Michael Cohen's post in which he announces his blog is being shut down.

4.) Colby Buzzell -- who ran a truly gripping blog, the equal of any war writing ever produced, IMO.

5.) Greyhawk, who's cited more for being the father of the milblog movement (which he is), rather than for his content (which is plentiful and terrific.)

It's good that the WaPo has done this, and yes, the opsec issue is interesting and important. But the article is a big disappointment - a wasted opportunity. I feel like the WaPo totally missed the point. It's pretty bad when more than half the blogs they mention aren't even posting new content.

It seems like they didn't do much reporting on this at all.

Splash, out
