On his eponymous blog, Ben Buckman (CAS’08) shares political and cultural tidbits on topics ranging from Internet censorship in China to apathy about the violence by Islamic insurgents in Somalia.

In recent posts, which can be as frequent as several a day, Buckman has railed against the military’s fabrication of heroes to bolster support for the war in Iraq.

There’s "another dimension of false heroism: the real heroes’ stories aren’t told,” Buckman writes.
