Officials: Sadr City battles killed hundreds in April
"BAGHDAD, Iraq CNN) -- The fighting that erupted in Baghdad's Sadr City last month has killed 925 people and wounded 2,605, a top government official said Wednesday.
Most of the casualties consist of civilians and "criminal elements attacked by us," said Tahseen al-Sheikhly, a spokesman for the Baghdad security crackdown called Operation Enforcing the Law.
Civilians are being caught in the crossfire because militants "use the population to cover themselves," al-Sheikhly said."
On the anniversary of the single greatest propaganda fuck-up in American history, no doubt the sons-of-bitches in the RepubliCon party will point to this carnage as proof that "the Surge is working." While the media attempts to do voodoo reanimation tricks over Hillary's campaign in a ploy for more interesting coverage and damage to the American left, Iraqi citizens and US soldiers are killed or horribly injured.
The surge has worked, indeed.
