Michael Yon posts a long dispatch for his new readers relating how he came to be in Iraq, the mistakes he's seen, as well as the successes. If you haven't read him before start now, he is one of the absolute best reporters over there. if you have read his stuff be SURE to read this one. It is a very important post and very edifying.
Excerpting can do it no justice and only detract from the many faceted picture he paints. It also links to many of his most important articles.
Read the whole thing.
Update: Huntress reports that he's not just getting picked up by FOX news online, but by NBC as well.
Neither is paying him, he's still quite independent.
