Since I've been seeing Riverbend's name a lot recently - Ilaria blogrolls her, and is very impressed - Maj. Sean Bannion's irate fisking of one of Riverbend's recent postings would seem to be in order. He's mostly right, as far as I can tell. I'd add that she's exceedingly fond of rumors and airy assertion, and her predominant tone is one of envy. She loves bagging on ministers and Governing Council members and ranting about how high on the hog they live. Zeyad, on the other hand, offers a lot of first-person information and interesting nuance. If you're going to follow an Iraqi blogger, try Zeyad instead.
