Truck Bomb hits Hotel housing UN in Baghdad
From CNN.

Bremer, Bush and the rest can try to blame "remnants of Saddam's regime" all they want, but the blame for turning Baghdad into Beirut East lies squarely with them. Bush chose to lie about the evidence and start the war--war was not "forced upon us" as he liked to claim beforehand.

[Update] A comment on Atrios:

On Fox News they're covering the blast and the reporter (dont know her name) had the balls to say this, "While we don't know who is the cause of this, as no one has claimed responsibility yet, this kind of attack must be carefully coordinated. Could this be part of some pre-war agreement between Saddam Hussein and Usama bin Laden?"

Fox News inhabits a different reality from that of intelligent people.
