yoncov.jpgMichael Yon is a blogger, and independent journalist, and he’s actually the longest serving embedded journalist in Iraq. He’s also got a new book out, Moment of Truth in Iraq: How a New ‘Greatest Generation’ of American Soldiers is Turning Defeat and Disaster into Victory and Hope. It’s a terrific book, and a must-read for anyone interested in the war on terror.

We talk to Michael about independent blogging, the situation in Iraq and how it’s changed since he started reporting in 2004, and his new book. Plus, advice for the Presidential candidates on what to say, and do, about Iraq over the coming year.
