First off... it just says that some dude from the Coalition says that the Iraqis forgive us. Isn't that nice? What it doesn't say is which Iraqis said that. Call me pessimistic, but I'm guessing that the Iraqi with the bag over his head and a military issue flashlight forcibly rammed up his ass isn't forgiving us just yet.
Second... I'm getting a little sick of the administration trying to spin every bad thing they do by linking their victims to the "bad guys". Yeah... we bombed a place. There may or may not have been a wedding there, but hey! We found a whole bunch of good shit there, so the house was probably being used by militants who are against the U.S. Hell, we think it's actually Osama Bin Laden's summer home, based on the fact that we found some cheese with a similar teeth pattern to his.
I can't believe people can even stomach this bullshit, let alone believe it.
