Car Bomb Kills Nine US Servicemen Deadliest Attack in One Year

From AP

BAGHDAD – A suicide car bomb struck a patrol base northeast of Baghdad on Monday, killing nine U.S. soldiers and wounding 20 in the single deadliest attack on American ground forces in more than a year, the military said.

An Iraqi civilian also was wounded in the attack on Task Force Lightning soldiers in Diyala province, a volatile area that has been the site of fierce fighting involving U.S. and Iraqi troops, Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias.

This will be in the backdrop as Petraeus speaks to Congress this week, as well as the Bill which will be sent to the Oval Office. I’m NOT trying to politicize this sad event, but it’s almost impossible to do so in the current atmosphere.

  1. Sad indeed. Our loyal, honorable troops are dying for lies and false promises, and a Government & Corporate Media monster, that is turning America into another Soviet Union.

  2. Tim,
    I respect your opinion, but I hope they died for more than that. I have a feeling, being a veteran, that they believed they did.
