The NYT Magazine has a very readable article by Elizabeth Rubin on the US army’s outpost in the Korengal Valley. Here are some other post-9/11 stories I’ve enjoyed. Here’s one by George Packer, on Iraqi’s who felt betrayed. And this one is by Lawrence Wright, on his time in Saudi Arabia. These people write articles the size of books.
