Iraq: Malkin's first report from the field

Michelle Malkin has posted her first photos and comments from her current embed assignment in Iraq. Michelle is providing us with a view of the challenges operating in Baghdad:

Yes, there is danger and chaos and unspeakable bloodshed in parts of Baghdad. Sectarian violence--compounded by everyday street crime and tribal conflict--is rampant.

I am not sure why you are posting about Michelle Malkin she has been totally discredited, this is a blogger:
