My buddy Peter Maass has this excellent piece in the New York Times Magazine titled The Way of the Commandos.

The piece follows Adnan Thabit, the leader of Iraq's most fearsome counterinsurgency force (and a former general under Saddam) and includes a chilling account of his visit to a detention center. Peter gently makes the point that while effective, there are dangers in getting into bed with a guy like this. For more of his stuff, you can get to his site via my blogroll.
