Blogger going back to the Iraq frontlines

June 10, 2008

Warblogger Colby Buzzell has been recalled into the US military for another tour of Iraq.

The freelance journalist who’s CBFTW blog, since renamed My War, was a pain in the arse for American generals, has been recalled, even though he’s on the inactive list.

The recall is legal under the American “Stop Loss” policy and every recruiting contract apparently contains the “Stop Loss” clause in the fine print.

In an op-ed article for the San Francisco Chronicle, Buzzell writes:

“If the Army thought I was a problem last time wait until they send me back there again. I’m going to be blogging about everything.”

We’ll come back to this.
