Mysterious Case of the Disappearing War

Good gravy. Seven soldiers dead today in one single attack, and it doesn't even rate front page news on any of the mainstream news websites.

Car Bomb Near Fallujah Kills 7 Marines

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A massive car bomb exploded on the outskirts of Fallujah on Monday, killing seven U.S. Marines and wounding several others, a U.S. military official said.

The strength of the blast sent the engine from the vehicle used in the bombing flying "a good distance" from the site, a military official said on condition of anonymity.
