54...10...civilian...insurgents...whatever. You guys and your big all-important "facts"...
I still find this amusing when this pops up:
Samarra, a volatile town in the so-called Sunni Triangle north and west of Baghdad, was the scene of clashes between U.S. troops and insurgents last month. U.S. commanders initially claimed to have killed 54 guerrillas in that clash, but local residents and police reported that less than 10 people — most of them civilians — died in the firefight.
Don't you think AP should, you know, send a reporter out to find out whose story is true? Maybe get an accurate number. I hear that Nedra Pickler is available.
Meanwhile support for the occupation among Iraqis is up a hundred bazillion percent.
