Imagine that

The US tried to kill Al-Sadr by luring him to a house for peace talks then attacking him.

“I believe that particular incident made Muqtada lose any confidence or trust in the [US-led] coalition and made him really wild,” [said] the Iraqi National Security Adviser Dr Mowaffaq Rubai’e.

Dunno about you, but if someone tried to kill me, I wouldn’t trust them either.

    Astounding… but not unprecedented. The U.S. did the same to Chief Osceola during the Second Seminole War.

    In this case, though, it appears (especially in hindsight) to be another case of complete idiocy by the Bush Administration. After all, could such a plot have been hatched and executed without approval from the highest echelons?
