2 Iraqi Women, a Child Die in U.S. Raid


Chicago Tribune
Excerpt:BAGHDAD, Iraq — U.S. troops raided a neighborhood northeast of Baghdad early Friday, killing five people — including two women and a child — after gunmen fired from the rooftops of buildings, the U.S. military said.
A U.S. statement said troops were looking for “terrorists” associated with the al-Qaida in Iraq network during the raid in Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of the capital. Iraqi police said a single man fired warning shots because he believed the soldiers were militiamen.

H.L.s Take:
They were “looking for terrorists?” Why didn’t they check the Whitehouse first???

US Has No Idea of ‘War on Terror’ Cost: Watchdog


Common Dreams
Excerpt:The US government has lost track of the cost of the "war on terror" unleashed after the September 11 attacks and which is now taking up tens of billions of dollars a year in Iraq and Afghanistan, a Congress watchdog warned.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) said that neither the Defence Department nor Congress had any accurate idea how much the war has cost since the attacks on New York and Washington in 2001.
