Remembering Stephen Vincent

Wretchard on the murder of Stephen Vincent, freelance journalist and blogger, in Iraq.

Whether Sunni killed Shi'ite or Shi'ite killed Sunni, Mr. Vincent knew murder when he saw it. It will be interesting to see whether the media will attribute Mr. Vincent's death to "guerillas" or to "paramilitary death squads". But in a sense it will not matter. He was witness to the necessity for honesty and the survival of outrage; conscious of how near death stands to all of us in the workaday world without watchful men ready to give the alarm with just words.

Michelle Malkin has an extensive roundup of reaction, while Ed Morrissey recalls his interview with Vincent a few months ago.
