Survey Says...

A military investigation has found that Iraqi troops being trained by American forces killed two California National Guard soldiers two years ago during a patrol north of Baghdad, an Army spokesman said Tuesday.

National Guard Spc. Patrick R. McCaffrey Sr., 34, of Tracy and 1st Lt. Andre D. Tyson, 33, of Riverside were killed in June 2004 by the Iraqis as they walked in the farmland outside of the town of Balad, about 50 miles from the capital.

Their deaths were originally attributed to an ambush by insurgents, but after looking into the incident for several months, the Army's Criminal Investigation Command concluded that the soldiers had been killed by supposed allies.

Hum... two years ago...

Interesting, our allies are at war with us, while we are every day winning ever newer and ever more glorious victories over the Iranian Flying Suacers....
