Falluja deal reported;
10 GIs killed elsewhere

Some Marine units were already beginning to pack up in preparation for a withdrawal, and a Marine commander, Lt. Col. Brennan Byrne, said the Iraqi force would start entering Falluja on Friday


Gotta be one of the odder poll results:
Iraq poll: War did more harm than good but "worth hardships" Nearly half the Iraqis polled in a survey conducted primarily in March and early April said they believed the U.S.-led war had done more harm than good, but 61 percent of respondents said Saddam Hussein's ouster made it worth any hardships.
The poll suggested more than half of Iraqis had a negative impression of U.S. forces in general before the current wave of violence.

NY Times/CBS poll
American support for war "down sharply" On whether to pull out soon or stay, it's a tossup Americans are increasingly critical of the way President Bush is handling the conflict, according to the poll

Maureen Dowd:
So let's see. What's our swell choice here?
A guy who mimed being a fighter pilot on a carrier versus a guy who mimed throwing his medals over a fence? An incumbent who sticks with the wrong decisions based on the wrong facts versus a challenger who seems unable to stick to one side of any decision, right or wrong?

60 Minutes II to show Americans abusing Iraqi prisoners
"..Army general and her command staff may face the end of long military careers. And six soldiers are facing court martial in Iraq -- and possible prison time."

I put the above link here today (Thursday) without really thinking about what night 60 II is on-- which was last night. The CBS website story is misleading. If you click the link you will see two references to TODAY'S date, with no indication the show ran last night. Sorry. CBS Rules!

In two Iraq cities, no solution to standoffs A further incursion into Fallujah -- the only way many Marine officers say the insurgency here can be squelched -- has been rejected by local and national Iraqi leaders as an unacceptable risk to tens of thousands of noncombatants in the city.

Like quicksand, isn't it. If you move, you sink, but in order to get out you must move. Welcome to the quagmire which a certain American president specifically says is not a quagmire.

Snakehead walking fish is back (with photo) Maryland authorities announced Wednesday that the voracious Asian invader, which can breathe out of water and scoot short distances over land, has reappeared. He and his friend were debating what to do with the fish, which was lying on the ground inside the plastic bag. A park maintenance worker walked up, curious, and stuck his foot near the animal.
Suddenly, Wintermoyer said, the snakehead lunged.
"It put a pretty good tooth mark in his steel-toed boot," he said.

California panel recommends paper ballot backups for touch-screen voting machines Ten counties with touch-screen voting machines can use them in November -- but only if alternative paper ballots are offered in each precinct, a state advisory committee recommended. The vote also would ban other counties in California from introducing new ATM-like electronic voting equipment in November, unless the machines include a verified paper trail of votes cast.
