Beginning with the first day of the week of the promised sweeping crack down in Baghdad, markets in the centre of the city were rocked this morning by huge sectarian explosions killing up to 65 people and injuring three times that many. The bombs went off in three different locations just at the end of the 15 min national commemoration for the burning of the Golden Mosque of Samara  

 

North of Baghdad a ferocious fight is taking place with 'Al Qaeda in Iraq' for control of the small town of Buhritz, which US forces have already "cleansed" 4 times, only to see the town fall back into insurgent hands again. Now the Al Qaeda flag flies over the police station and the battle has been going on since Saturday with painful progress. A CNN imbedded report showed US Iraqi troops taking 8 hours to advance only half a kilometre.

Iraq Attack

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
