Two U.S. soldiers killed in northern Iraq
BAGHDAD (Reuters) An attacker wearing an Iraqi army uniform shot and killed two U.S. soldiers outside the volatile northern city of Mosul on Saturday, the U.S. military said.

"We have reports of a small arms fire attack in Hamam al-Alil, 20 km (12.5 miles) south of Mosul," said Major Derrick Cheng, a spokesman for the U.S. military in Mosul and surrounding Nineveh province.

"There are initial reports of two U.S. soldiers killed in the attack ... According to initial reports, an individual dressed in an Iraqi army uniform fired on the coalition forces and was killed in the incident."

An Iraqi police lieutenant-colonel in Mosul, who declined to be named, said the man who shot the U.S. soldiers was an Iraqi soldier who also acted as an imam at an Iraqi military training center in Hamam al-Alil.

He said the American soldiers were doing exercises in the training centre's yard at the time of the attack. He did not know what had happened to the attacker afterwards.

1. But don't you feel more "free" because of those brave lads?
"bush and his cronies needs to be arrested and thrown in jail for the rest of their fucking miserable lives."

Is Obama part of the "cronies"? He isn't doing anything to resolve the issue...

3. We'll have to see what Obama does
His administration didn't start this bullshit, so I will give him time to do the right thing.
