Dean Barnett and I had the honor speaking with Michael Yon live from Baghdad this morning.

Our discussion began with today's transition ceremony that Michael attended where Gen. Petraeus officially took command of our great forces in Iraq. We also discussed whether or not the Iraqi's are "stepping up", what it is like to embed and what the chances are for success at this point.

As always, this is a compelling discussion with an amazing man and an incredibly important citizen journalist. If you can afford to support Michael’s work, you can do so here.

You can read Michael’s latest dispatch here.

The interview is also available for download at iTunes and Podcast Ready.
