The American sheik

Salt Lake Tribune:
Sheik Horn floats around the room in white robe and headdress, exchanging pleasantries with dozens of village leaders. But he is the only sheik with blonde streaks in his mustache - and the only one who attended country music star Toby Keith's recent concert in Baghdad with fellow U.S. soldiers. Officially, he is Army Staff Sgt. Dale L. Horn, but to residents of the 37 villages and towns that he patrols he is known as the American sheik.
Read the whole article. Establishing rapport with Iraqi's can be difficult, but stories like this show that this is being accomplished, in some cases spectacularly. (via Instapundit)

I agree with your assessment. I also hope he has good security.
