Another Update From Iraq By Michael Yon / Michael Yon Is By Far The Best Source From The Iraq Frontlines

Second Chances

The official reported that on a couple of occasions in Baqubah, al Qaeda invited to lunch families they wanted to convert to their way of thinking. In each instance, the family had a boy, he said, who was about 11 years old. As LT David Wallach interpreted the man’s words, I saw Wallach go blank and silent. He stopped interpreting for a moment. I asked Wallach, “What did he say?” Wallach said that at these luncheons, the families were sat down to eat. And then their boy was brought in with his mouth stuffed. The boy had been baked. Al Qaeda served the boy to his family.

Louisiana Sen. David Vitter Shows Up On D.C. Madam's Phone Records / Sen. Vitter Made Peace With Wife For "Serious Sin" (D.C. Madam's Records)

Senator's Number on Escort Service List

WASHINGTON -- Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, whose telephone number was disclosed by the so-called "D.C. Madam accused of running a prostitution ring, says he is sorry for a "serious sin" and that he has already made peace with his wife.

"This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible," Vitter said Monday in a printed statement. "Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there _ with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way."

"I just keep my head high. I guess I'm made of something that Brandy Britton wasn't made of. You know, I've got something in me. What that is, it can't be defined, but there's something in me that won't let 'em get away with it. And I'm not going to let these bastards get away with it."

An Update From Michael Yon / News From The Iraq Frontlines By Michael Yon

Baqubah Update: 05 July 2007

Today marks “D +16” of Operation “Arrowhead Ripper,” the Battle for Baqubah. Arrowhead Ripper kicked off on 19 June 07. I have several dispatches in the works about the major events since that time. Although the serious fighting seems to be over, there remains a possibility for some sharp fighting in the near future. The morning of 06 July began with the sounds of American cannons firing, shells whizzing through the air, while they checked systems and aiming for combat. Apache helicopters orbited Baqubah as the orange sun crested into view.
