"Baghdad Governor Hussein Tahan said all co-operation with US forces would be suspended unless the incident was investigated by a panel not including the US military."

Funny how this got almost no coverage in US media. I was crusing BBC radio 1 for some music to listen to when I saw this off their front page. I guess all of the immigration coverage is drowning out the Iraq situation for now.

Ignorance is bliss.
This mosque thing it's ok, what I really really worry about is if some dumb a$$ soldier decides it to be funny if he were to take advantage of an Iraqi woman. A very serious problem.
