Since credibility is so scarce on both sides

I'm suffering from sodium overdose with the grains of salt I have to consume. Seven enlisted soldiers thought it might be fun to fuck with the prisoners. Yeah, right. A wedding near the Syrian border was attacked ... or was it a terrorist waystation? A good analysis of the conflicting accounts:

Still, some reports are credible. I had coffee with a local reporter a couple of weeks ago. Her colleague recently back from Iraq had gotten word that their translator and his 4 year-old son had been assassinated in their home a few days after they left. The wife was not home, and has been evacuated to Europe.

We need to (1) train an Iraqi army and (2) get the hell out ASAP. (That first part is optional.)
