Governor of Baghdad Assassinated
As we said the other day, violence is escalating in Baghdad. The governor of Baghdad was assassinated yesterday in an ambush. No wonder Paul Bremer and Bernie Kerik snuck out of there under cover of darkness. Who could blame them? The only thing that doesn't ring true is whey they, and the Bush Administration, continue to insist that these rebel actions are just a "bump in the road."
Oh, just a little footnote: At least 11 others were killed and 60 seriously wounded by a car bomb yesterday in Iraq. We've just become immune to hearing about it anymore. From what I could tell on Fox last night, the big story was a Bill O'Reilly piece about Michael Jackson saying his court case was all about money.
