Amazingly Sad and Despicable

An Iraqi car-bomber got through the American checkpoint because there were children in the back seat, lowering suspicions. The bombers ran off and detonated the car with the children still in it.

The AP refers to them as "insurgents," BTW. A tangential but very irritating point.

When I read that I shouted the news to my husband, I was so angry.

Ugh. I'm shivering a little.

Calling people such as this (blowing up children to further their "cause") "insurgents" is very close to calling the SS that oversaw the Holocaust as "prison officials."

Hard to find a sitter in Baghdad on a school night.
