From today’s Los Angeles Times, something that really puts yesterday’s Iraq hearings into perspective:

A pair of explosions in Baghdad killed at least 22 people Wednesday as insurgents launched attacks aimed at Iraqi police officers. It was the deadliest day in the capital in several months.

Three U.S. soldiers were killed by small-arms fire in an attack in Hawija, near the northern oil city of Kirkuk. At least 4,090 American soldiers have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to the independent website icasualties.org.

In the east Baghdad neighborhood of Kamaliya, U.S. and Iraqi soldiers found a mass grave with at least 10 bodies believed to have been buried about two years ago. The soldiers, acting on a tip from a resident, unearthed the bodies in a “watery well-like grave,” the U.S. military said in a statement.

At a small gathering following yesterday’s testimony, Nadeem al-Jaberi, a member of the Iraqi Parliament from the Shiite Fadhila party, said, “The anarchy and chaos in Iraq is linked to the presence of the occupation, not withdrawal from Iraq.”
