Green Zone attacked during sandstorm

April 27th, 2008 . by TexasFred

BAGHDAD - Militants fired a salvo of rockets or mortars at the heavily guarded Green Zone in Baghdad on Sunday, while officials reported that Iraqi security forces had found more than 100 bodies in two mass graves.

The militants apparently were taking advantage of a sandstorm that blanketed the Iraqi capital Sunday and grounded U.S. helicopters and drones that normally track their activities.

Fifty bodies were found in a mass grave in central Iraq on Sunday, a military source in the area said, and another team said it had discovered more than 50 bodies in a grave south of Baghdad on April 17.

The grave found on Sunday was in the village of al-Guba, 50 miles north of Baghdad, in the troubled Diyala province, where al-Qaida Sunni Arab militants have regrouped after being driven out of other parts of the country.

Most of the bodies had their hands bound and gunshot wounds in the head. Some were decomposed, according to the military source, who declined to be named.

A senior security spokesman in Baghdad, Major-General Qassim Moussawi, said police and Iraqi military had uncovered 51 bodies in a grave on April 17 in Mahmudiya, a town 20 miles south of Baghdad.

He added that security forces had taken them to the morgue of a local hospital and some families had already identified the victims as their relatives.

I sure do wish ‘The Queen of the Bush Bots’ wasn’t avoiding me, I’d love to hear one of her “I got my information while hanging out behind the ‘O’ Club” stories, you know the stories I am talking about, the ones that she tells as Gospel about how everything is just lovely in Iraq, yeah, those stories…

These lies from the MSM are just so depressing, I had come to count on “Queenie” because of the truth and accuracy in her reporting the facts from a place she’s never been and never will go to either…

One of MY contacts, a guy that I thought was my friend, a guy that really IS in Iraq, in a capacity that’s way over the pay grade of anyone that ‘Queenie’ knows, well, he must be a liar too, just like the MSM, he tells pretty much the same stories that the MSM is putting out there, rocket and mortar attacks, references to civil war, heavy stuff in some areas, yeah, those lies, I guess he’s making it up, or, he may be having flashbacks to a time past when he was flying for Air Am, uh, doing some humanitarian work in S.E. Asia, yeah, humanitarian work, that’s the ticket!!

And we all know what liars those humanitarian types can be…

U.S. workers in Baghdad restricted

March 27th, 2008 . by TexasFred

BAGHDAD - The State Department on Thursday told all workers at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad not to leave reinforced structures following the deaths of two Americans in attacks on the Green Zone, a heavily fortified area besieged by militants this week.

The Baghdad military command imposed a curfew on the capital from 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Sunday in bid to stem the violence.

One American was killed Thursday by incoming insurgent fire on the Green Zone. U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Mirembe Nantongo identified the person as a government employee but said she could give no further details until relatives were notified.

An American financial analyst was killed Sunday in the first volley to strike the zone.

The U.S. military has blamed Iranian-backed Shiite militiamen for the attacks, which come as amid heightened tensions between followers of radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and the Shiite-led government.

But other than these few minor little incidents everything is pretty much okie-dokie in Baghdad, I have it on good authority, this is just more BS from the MSM, the rocket attacks on the Green Zone and the ensuing death(s) are merely MSM attempts at sensationalism, you know how the MSM loves to make the war effort out to be something it’s not, one of the # 1 Bush Bots said so.

It must be the truth, I mean, 28% of the nation can’t be wrong, can they? :?
