A very bad day in Iraq

A mortar attack on a U.S. military mess tent in Mosul, Iraq, today killed at least 24 people and injured more than 60. The dead include members of the U.S. and Iraqi armies, as well as seven employees of Halliburton subsidiary KBR. Today's attack came close on the heels of two car bombings that killed 67 people Monday in the Iraqi cities of Karbala and Najaf.

Iraq is a bloody place, and it looks like it's getting more dangerous by the minute. I'll have more thoughts later, but for now, I send my condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
