Embedding in Iraq

Originally posted on November 1st, please scroll down for new posts

Hello, everyone. I am planning an embed to Iraq in the next three to four weeks. My goal is to embed with the Army in Baghdad and the Marines Ramadi. These two cities are the flash points in Iraq.

If you are not already aware, I have devoted all of my time and energy to this endeavor. This is my full-time job. I need your support to make this happen.

I believe this war is too important for me to sit back and let others do the work. I learned early on that our greatest deficiencies in this war are partisan free reporting, education on the nature of our enemy, and honest, informed reporting on how our troops are doing on the ground. Currently, there are 11 embedded reporters in Iraq, while the United States has over 150,000 troops in country.

I really need your help to keep this project going. Please support this embed by donating via PayPal.

Or, if you wish to send a check, email me at billroggio@gmail.com and I will send you an address.

Additionally, if you would like to donate a specific item, such as life insurance, an airline ticket or camera, email me and we can discuss the options.

Thank you as always for your support.

Bill, any chance you can get a sitdown interview with Sadr?

You certainly have my support again as in the past. Your insights on the situation in Afghanistan and Iraq need a larger public venue. Brave folks, such as yourself allow for continued faith that the U.S. can and will succeed. Stay safe and God Bless you and all of our troops.

I just donated Bill. Be careful over there.

Students don't usually have much to throw around, so you'll have to forgive my parsimony. Keep plugging.
