    MILITARY COVERED-UP ATTACK ON CIVILIANS
    The American military admitted Sunday night that a platoon of soldiers raked a car of innocent Iraqi civilians with hundreds of rounds of gunfire and that the military then issued a news release larded with misstatements, asserting that the victims were criminals who had fired on the troops.

    AIR FORCE ESCALATES CIVILIAN CASUALTIES
    For the first time in Iraq, the Air Force is flying missions this month with the new Reaper, a large remotely controlled vehicle that carries not only advanced surveillance sensors, but also bombs and missiles comparable to those on top-of-the-line piloted fighters. . . .

    U.S. HOLDS REUTERS CAMERAMAN WITHOUT CHARGES
    No charge has ever been filed against the cameraman. . . . The military contends that under the U.N. mandate governing the presence of foreign forces in Iraq it can detain anyone considered a security risk indefinitely.

    DE-HYPING THE SURGE
    No, sorry, AP. The US toll was at an “all-time low” before the invasion, when the number was zero. Unfortunately for the Iraqis, even then their toll wasn’t zero, since the decade-long embargo, not to mention the continued bombing in the “no-fly” zones, took lives by the tens of thousands every month.
