On The Beat With Baghdad's Most Famous Cop

Junk Yard Blog goes on the beat with the world’s most famous cop (imaginary or otherwise), and writes, “Captain Jamil Hussein: he’s everywhere!”

Meanwhile, Glenn Reynolds asks, “Has Marc Danziger found Jamil Hussein?”:

Possibly. Upside for AP: This would mean he exists. Downside for AP: A blogger operating from California finds a source in Iraq that AP itself couldn’t produce.

I guess Capt. Hussein emerged on the scene too late to be Time magazine’s Man of the Year. Of course, in a sense, he is, anyhow!
