From Iraq: Men in Black

This video has been making the rounds lately, but until I read about it on Very Short List I hadn't watched it.  I'm glad I did.  It's a stirring blog entry from former Army Specialist Colby Buzzell [about an ambush in Iraq], brought to life by Sin-Cityish animation.  Not only are the visuals haunting, but Buzzell's voiceover [that is his voice so I understand] adds an authenticity that could not be matched by an actor.  Amazing that a 'cartoon' can somehow seem more real than actual video footage.  While I understand that professional animators produced the video, the words are Buzzell's.  This makes the bulk of user-generated-content look like ... well, the bulk of user-generated content.
