Bloggers Raise Red Flags Over New Republic's 'Baghdad Diarist'

The column in the New Republic, described as being penned by a U.S. soldier in Iraq, is filled with tales of petty, stomach-churning behavior. The "Baghdad Diarist," writing under the pseudonym Scott Thomas, says he was "shocked by my own cruelty" as he recounts soldiers getting their kicks by running over dogs with Bradley Fighting Vehicles and playing with Iraqi children's skulls taken from a mass grave. But now......more from the Washington Post.

More on this story from the Weekly Standard with blog links, and from the American Thinker.
