Looks like we nailed three ... 
UPDATE: Turns out the US hit the wrong house. Those who were killed inside were really innocent. This post is hereby retracted by the author.

There's no reason for Iraqi men to go digging on the side of the road after dark, other than to prepare IEDs. They were spotted. And then, when they went home, American ordinance hit them where they lived, and all was right with the world.

The Washington Post headline: "U.S. Raid Kills Family."

Is there no end to media obtuseness?

There is nothing in the laws of war which prevents US forces from hitting moojies whereever they are. We can't take out a whole neighborhood to catch one IED crew. But we can sure as shit take down a house. One busy and skilled IED cell can kill dozens of US and coalition troops, and dozens of innocent civilians. If moojies want to protect their families and keep them safe, they have only two choices: Give up the fight, or never go home again.

If their families are providing shelter to mujahedeen, then they are aiding and abetting terrorism. It is a matter of public record that the US draws no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them.

Looks like a good shot to me.
