Today in Iraq

Antiwar.com described civilian violence in Iraq today as “lighter than usual.” Some of the violence included 20 bodies that were found shot to death, two boys that were killed when mortars fell on a soccer field, and the director of a state-owned water-supply company that was shot. Also, two people, one of whom was likely tortured, were found dead, and there is no word on what happened to a driver whose truck was found abandoned.

Meanwhile in Washington, Bush wants war funding with “no strings attached,” according to the New York Times, and says his hope is that “Congress provides the funding necessary for the combat troops to be able to do their job — without any strings attached.” Considering what he’s done with war authorization and funding in the past, my hope is that congress provides the troops what they need and has the sense not to give Bush any war funding without strings attached.
