Well that didn't take long. On Wednesday, Victory and all combat troops leave Iraq, on Sunday somebody gets killed. (And they haven't) Who could have seen this coming?
The Wednesday story is all over the US media, the Sunday story is in a British newspaper. Evidently it's no longer news in the US when the “small people” die.
What are they going to say happened to the guy? Couldn't be a war casualty, there's no “combat”, it's not a “war” or an “occupation”. I'm sure they'll come up with something, maybe he's “post-transitional”? Dennis Kucinich gets it:
“Who is in charge of our operations in Iraq , now? George Orwell?”
Preach on, Dennis.
