Iraqi minister shot dead

From correspondents in Baghdad
19jul04

A HIGH-RANKING official at Iraq's Defence Ministry was shot dead in a hail of bullets last night in Baghdad, a ministry spokesman said today.

"One of the director generals in the Ministry of Defence, Issam Jassem Kadhem, was assassinated at 10pm yesterday by unknown attackers who opened fire on him in the Saydia neighbourhood where he lives," spokesman Radhi Badr told AFP.
The killing occurred in the same area where a truck bomb exploded today, killing several people outside a police station.

8. Maybe its Clinton's fault?
I don't see a long career potential in serving in the occupation/provisional govt.
People who serve have a short life expectancy.

BUT we still got rid of a brutal dictator by replacing him with other brutal dictators

let freedom reign.
