Three Missing after Deadly Attack on U.S. Patrol in Iraq

While the politicians debate American soldiers continue to die needlessly:
Seven U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi army interpreter were attacked while on patrol in an al Qaeda stronghold south of Baghdad on Saturday. Five were killed and three are missing, the U.S. military said.

The attack, one of the worst against American ground forces since a U.S.-backed security crackdown began in Baghdad three months ago, took place near the town of Mahmudiya, in the same area where two U.S. soldiers were abducted by al Qaeda insurgents last year before their mutilated bodies were found.
