Yah. Oops!

Ruling Shi'ites demand Iraq regain security control

By Omar al-Ibadi
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's ruling Shi'ite alliance on Monday urged U.S. forces to return control of security to Iraqis after what it called the cold-blooded killing of unarmed people in a Baghdad mosque during a U.S.-Iraqi raid.

It made the demand as angry Shi'ites buried those killed in Sunday's operation by Iraqi special forces backed by U.S. advisers. The U.S. military has denied targeting a mosque.

In northern Iraq, a suicide bomber killed 40 army recruits after walking into an Iraqi base near the restive city of Mosul.[....]

The bombing in the north occurred between Mosul and Tal Afar, a town U.S. President George W. Bush has recently held up as an example of security progress in Iraq.
Hm, no wonder they're a little upset. We attacked a mosque, killed unarmed civilians, and...all in the town that just last week Bush claimed was settled and secure.
See, if you're a resident of Tal Afar today, this is what you're going to see: You see that the terrorist who once exercised brutal control over every aspect of your city has been killed or captured, or driven out, or put on the run. You see your children going to school and playing safely in the streets. You see the electricity and water service restored throughout the city. You see a police force that better reflects the ethnic and religious diversity of the communities they patrol. You see markets opening, and you hear the sound of construction equipment as buildings go up and homes are remade. In short, you see a city that is coming back to life.
No, in short where you're just occupied by a brand new buncha terrorists.

How many times do these assholes have to be wrong before they're thrown out? Why is it that the Republicans in Congress, instead of rebelling against immigration policy, aren't holding Bush's feet to the fire about Iraq? Isn't THAT where the lion's share of our resources, our tax dollars, are going?

When will these asses be held accountable?
