Conservative journalist and Washington Post writer Michael Kelly is one of the latest casualties of the war. He and an American Soldier were killed in an accident involving their humvee. “Michael Kelly in Iraq” is his latest article contributed to Townhall.com on April 3rd. [via C-Log]
This from the Washington Post article;
Kelly, the first American journalist killed in the war, had also served as editor of the New Republic and National Journal. But his decision to join up with U.S. forces marked a return to his reporting roots, since he covered the first Persian Gulf War as a magazine freelancer and turned his observations into a book, “Martyrs’ Day.” While one Australian and two British journalists have been killed covering the war, Kelly’s death is the first among the 600 correspondents participating in the Pentagon’s embedding program.
