CBS News correspondent Lara Logan reports on Iraq’s New Danger: Armor-Piercing Grenades

(CBS) An al Qaeda propaganda video dated Aug. 15, 2006, shows a brazen attack on U.S. soldiers with a hand grenade that’s more deadly than any other. The explosion is huge, as three armor-piercing bombs find their target.

It’s not a new weapon on the Iraqi battlefield, but CBS News has learned it’s being used more now than ever. And for the first time, the Army has admitted this weapon is killing its soldiers.

A Random Thought

According to this wire service report: Nepal airline sacrifices goats to appease sky god

KATHMANDU (Reuters) – Officials at Nepal’s state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said on Tuesday.

I wonder what Akash Bhairab would do for Northwest or Delta if they sacrificed their CEOs?

Sometimes You Forget

You’re trying to make that plane and you forget what you’re carrying. Happens to a lot of people.

Like the guy Whig wrote about who left the 4-inch folding hunting knife in his backpack and when he went through security they confiscated his pudding.

Then there was Congresscritter John Hostettler [R-IN] who forgot he had a loaded Glock 9mm pistol in his briefcase as he tried to board an airplane in Louisville.

It happens to a lot of people, so why all the furor about Air Force forgetting there were six nuclear warheads on a B-52. People just forgot they were there.

KO Special Comment

Keith Olbermann on Countdown, a Special Comment: Bush just playing us with ‘troop withdrawal’.

It is possible that Keith is a bit annoyed. He conjugates the verb “to lie” and says things like “resignation” and “impeachment.” One might deduce that he is upset with the Shrubbery.

Go. Read. [also available as video.]
