I SAIIIIIIID, We Got C-130 Freakin' Helicopters, Part III!!!!! 
The Associated Press's Mohamed Olad Hassan jumps the shark:

MOGADISHU, Somalia — U.S. helicopter gunships launched new attacks today against suspected al Qaeda members, a Somali official said, a day after American forces launched airstrikes in the first offensive in the African country since 18 U.S. troops were killed there in 1993.

The latest attacks killed at least 27 civilians in the town of Afmadow in southern Somalia, lawmaker Abdiqadir Daqane told the Associated Press.

Yep. And sure enough, the Muslim AP writer won't miss a chance to report that a 4-year old boy was killed in the strike.

I'm sure they made sure of it. If a 4 year old wasn't killed in the strike, they'd have to invent one.

Now, the Somalis are saying that monday's airstrike was successful in killing Fazul Abdullah Mohammed - one of the targets of the strike, who is believed responsible for the 1998 African Embassy bombings.

Somehow, that doesn't warrant a mention in Hasan's story. But the 4-year-old boy does.

Keep an eye on this guy's byline.

Update: Al Maviva, you magnificent bastard, they read your book!!! (See comments)
