This Is Not Good
From Unqualified Offerings:
US Kills Iraqi Leader § Unqualified Offerings: Not a resistance leader, mind you.
The deputy commander of the Iraqi army in western Al-Anbar province was shot dead by US troops at a checkpoint Tuesday night, a police officer said. ‘The US forces opened fire at 8:00 pm on Brigadier General Ismail Swayed al-Obeid, who had left his base in Baghdadi to head home,’ police Captain Amin al-Hitti said. ‘They spotted him on the road after the curfew, which goes into effect at 6pm,’ the officer said in Baghdadi, 185 kilometres west of the capital.
Damned Commie Italians screw up everything, then lie about it.
To get all anti-imperialist on you like usual, I must note that this man was shot by Americans for being out after ‘curfew’ in his own country.
