I caught this in the Blogger homesite's "Fresh Blogs" list. I don't know if The View from Baghdad is real or not. The author says nothing about himself, not even in the first entry. It's hard not to be suspicious about something so unsubstantiated -- the downside of the web's anonymity/need for anonimity issue.
If this isn't real, it's a very interesting and engaging exercise in fiction. I'm reading the archives with amazement.
