"For a glimpse of how precarious life can be in Baghdad, IraqSlogger's report is fascinating," according to TPMmuckraker's Spencer Ackerman.

The report confirmed Ackerman's suspicion that Baghdad's bridges and surrounding neighborhoods "are battlegrounds for Iraq's multifaceted sectarian war." Ackerman writes that, "The spillover effect of unsafe areas nearby the bridges deeply influences Baghdad -- something that demonstrates just how much of a long shot Gen. David Petraeus' 'population protection' strategy is."
