State of emergency declared in Baghdad - Yahoo! News: "BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Iraqi government declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew Friday after insurgents set up roadblocks in central Baghdad and fired on U.S. and Iraqi troops outside the heavily fortified Green Zone."
And look at that - at the same exact time - the U.S. government just happens to charge 7 Muslims for 'talking about attacks' or some other nonsense:
MIAMI (Reuters) - Seven people arrested in Miami discussed attacks on the landmark Sears Tower in Chicago, the FBI building in Miami and other government buildings in a mission "just as good or greater" than September 11, U.S. officials said on Friday.
This is simply a way to distract the media from reporting exclusively on the Iraq bloodbath.
