Martha Raddatz: A Soldier fights for life from ABC's World Newser Foreign Correspondent reports that as the US hands over control of Ira's cities, our troops are still in harm's way.
Raddatz focuses on Lieutenant Colonel Tim Karcher who had both his legs shot off above the knees while traveling in Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood this week. Several of his buddies as well were injured in a subsequent incident when their convoy was hit by the notorious Iranian EFP (explosive formed projectile).
Raddatz also posted an update from Karher's wife who can't talk to her husband as of yet as he is sedated.
Let's hear more about heroes such as Karcher and less about the latest Michael Jackson media machine or the Obama White House's latest glam adventure or Governor Mark Sanford's expanding list of quasi mistresses.
