AP’s Steven Hurst: I can’t get the facts straight but, believe me, civil war is coming
Iraq Edges Closer to Open Civil Warfare

By Steven R. Hurst

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi authorities discovered at least 87 corpses — men shot to death execution-style — as Iraq edged closer to open civil warfare. Twenty-nine of the bodies, dressed only in underwear, were dug out of a single grave Tuesday in a Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad.

The bloodshed appeared to be retaliation for a bomb and mortar attack in the Sadr City slum that killed at least 58 people and wounded more than 200 two days earlier…

The most gruesome find Tuesday — the 29 bodies dressed only in underwear — was made after police, acting on a tip, discovered an 18-by-24-foot grave in an empty field in Kamaliyah, a mostly Shiite east Baghdad suburb, Interior Ministry official Lt. Col. Falah al-Mohammedawi said. He estimated the victims were killed about three days ago — before the Sadr City attack Sunday evening

So the people who killed the 29 underwear-clad men were clairvoyant. How else could they kill in retaliation for an attack that had yet to occur?

The really disgusting thing about reports like this is that it is becoming clear that the MSM, especially the NY Times, the AP, and CNN are literally aching for civil war in Iraq. Consequently, their reporting has moved from being predictably biased to being downright suspect.
