Salam Pax is back, blogging up a storm. Sounds like he's freelancing as a cameraman, journalist, translator, and just about any other news-related thing he can get a gig for. I especially like the bit where he's translating a conversation between the Iraqi journalist and an American soldier just before a combat advance against some insurgents, and realizes what he's translating is a request for permission to walk their camera rig out into the middle of an impending firefight. As the war wears on, Salam sounds more and more pro-American - one post is him chiding the ever-xenophobic Riverbend for her anybody-but-the-Americans rants on the subject of Sadr and an Najaf. Very odd.
