Iraqi "insurgents" commit another act of Islamophobia. "General: Insurgents used kids as cover, then killed them," from CNN, with thanks to CGiddensJr:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi insurgents used two children as a cover to get through a checkpoint in Baghdad and then blew up the car while the kids were still inside, a U.S. general said Tuesday.
Two adults jumped from the car, leaving the children in the back. Moments later, the car exploded, witnesses said.
The car went through a checkpoint Sunday and parked by a market across the street from a school, said Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero, deputy director for regional operations in the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The two children and three bystanders died in the blast, and seven others were hurt, Pentagon officials said.
The attack raises concerns that insurgents are trying a new tactic: using children to throw off troops, Barbero said.
"Children in the back seat lower suspicion. We let it move through," he said.
What do those moms and moms and moms and moms and dads that the President said we're fighting for think of this new tactic?
