Our man in Baghdad

We have written previously about Minnesota’s own Col. Joe Repya: “Col. Repya reports for duty.” Most recently, Col. Repya had a few words for the fruitcakes on the editorial board of the Star Tribune: “Col. Repya writes the Star Tribune.” Col. Repya is a retired Army Reserve Officer who re-upped for active duty at age 58. He is now 59 and serving in Iraq, where he writes us from Camp Victory South. We’re proud to call him a friend. Col. Repya has sent us the photo below (taken today) of himself with Professor Mary Habeck at Camp Victory.
Mary Habeck is one of the most prominent military historians of the younger generation. Professor Habeck has left Yale to join the faculty of Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies in Washington. She is the author or editor of several distinguished books (see here). She has two forthcoming books on jihadist ideology, one of which — Knowing the Enemy: Jihadist Ideology and the War on Terror — is now listed on Amazon.
