Prothom-alo reported some disturbing news from iraq. They used cbs as one of the sources. Did anyone else see this in the international media ?

it is accurate: see al jazeera here (http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/98692C2F-8950-4298-A2D0-354B11BBC470.htm)

and from CBS itself (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/04/30/iraq/main614905.shtml)

What's so disturbing about it? It's pretty predictable stuff. Rationality goes out of the window when you go to wars induced by lies and propanganda. It's just a small symptom of a big disease.

What is more disturbing is that 10,000+ innocent civilians are dead. That fact should get more importance than this shedding of crocodile tears.
