I’ve been following this story, but I just haven’t felt like posting about it. I guess I haven’t felt like I have anything in particular to add to it. If you look at things they way I do, you probably have a certain opinion about what this story means. If you don’t, you don’t.
Maybe I’ve gotten tired of the way those who interpretations of events have been proven wrong so many times over the course of the war persist in arguing that this time the facts on the ground will surely bear out their side’s version of reality. Yeah, well, whatever. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see about that, won’t we?
Anyway, we blew up a compound near the Syrian border where a bunch of foreign terrorists were hiding out on their way into Iraq. Or maybe we killed 40 or so innocent wedding guests, including many women and children. Or just maybe, per military spokesman Mark Kimmitt, we killed a bunch of terrorists who just happened to be attending a wedding. For those still capable of being influenced by evidence, video footage has been released that seems to bear out the wedding part of the story, at least: AP: Video shows Iraq wedding celebration.
