1. Why did the press happen to be in the middle of no-man's-land to caputure this event?

2. Iraqi National Guard troops are really a competent bunch! Going from over half deserting a few months back to crack leaders.

3. Are we actually to believe Iraqi National Guard troops did this by themselves or was it guarded and transported by American soldiers and 1 Iraqi National Guard troop pushed the detonation button!
