BAGHDAD, Iraq---A suicide truck bomber attacked a crowded market in Tal Afar late Tuesday, killing at least 17 people and wounding 35 in a city cited by President Bush as a success story in battling insurgents.

*I can already hear the answer from the White House: The insurgents attacked this city because Bush used it as an example of his successes in Iraq. But the truth is: Bush doesn't have anything in Iraq under control and the insurgents had to prove it to the people of the United States because the Bush administration won't!

The bombing occured after incoming Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said he almost finished assembling a Cabinet, the final step in establishing a national unity government. U.S. officials had predicted insurgents would step up attacks to try to block the new administration.

*If these attacks were predicted, then why didn't we do something about them?

U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad said al-Maliki would soon launch a four-part plan to restore order by securing Baghdad. Basra and eight other cities, promoting reconciliation, building a public confidence in the police and army and disbanding sectarian militias.

The truck bomber struck about 8:30 p.m. as shoppers in Tal Afar were scurrying to finish their purchases before closing, according to police Col. Abdul-Karim Mohammed, who gave the casualty figures.


The director of the city hospital, Saleh Qado, said that U.S. Army medics provided emergency treatment at the scene before loading the injured into ambulances.

Lt. Col. Ali Rasheed of the Interior Ministry said the main target may have been a police station within the market area of the city, 260 miles northwest of Baghdad.

*Talk about trying to slant the news.........The Bush administation is teaching them right. Come on.....260 miles?

At least 500 Iraqis have been killed by vehicle bombs in 2006, out of a total of at least 3,525 Iraqis killed in war-related violence this year.
