MORE SIGNS OF INSTABILITY IN IRAQ: TRUCK BOMB WOUNDS 15 NEAR MOSUL, IRAQ

I'm totally sickened about how the anchors and reportes at FOX NEWS, CNN and MSNBC allow these right wing pundits to come on their shows and claim things are calm and getting better in Iraq.

Nothing could be further from the truth and the anchors and reporters at FOX NEWS, CNN and MSNBC should hang their heads in shame because by going along with the right wing pundits they are sticking it to the brave young men and women in our military in IRAQ.

Here is just ONE instance of what took place on Tuesday in Iraq.

Hospital officials say a truck bomb has wounded at least 15 people near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Local police say the bomb was planted near the house of a Sunni sheik, Abdul-Razaq al-Waqaa, who had turned against al-Qaida.

Police say 40 people were wounded in the blast near al-Qayarra, 40 miles south of Mosul, including al-Waqaa and his wife.

The reason for the discrepancy in the number of wounded was not immediately clear.
Police say three houses collapsed in the bombing, and seven others were damaged. Authorities are searching through the rubble for those wounded or killed in the attack.


Police and hospital officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
