Christopher Hitchens, a Brit, says this about his trip to Iraq:

It's quite extraordinary to see the way that American soldiers are welcomed. To see the work that they're doing and not just rolling up these filthy networks of Baathists and Jihaddists, but building schools, opening soccer stadiums, helping people connect to the Internet, there is a really intelligent political program as well as a very tough military one....

I felt a sense of annoyance that I had to go there myself to find any of that out.

Thanks to CD Harris for finding this one.
