Ho Hum

Just another day in paradise.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A suicide car bombing early Monday outside the Green Zone government compound in Baghdad killed eight people and wounded 15, police said, a day after seven U.S. Marines died in clashes in restive Al Anbar province.

Iraq's interim government is based in the Green Zone, which is also home to the U.S. Embassy.

On Sunday seven Marines assigned to the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force were killed in two separate incidents while conducting security and stabilization operations in Al Anbar province west of Baghdad, the military said.

The Combined Press Information Center said in a written statement that because of protective measures, it was not releasing details of how the deaths occurred...
Just FYI, the CPIC (a subsidiary of BushCo Ministry of Information™) doesn't release details on anything. Details tend to be untidy.

(Got armour plating?)
