Oh, by the way...

From CNN:
Clashes between U.S. forces and armed insurgents early Sunday near Mosul, northern Iraq, wounded 34 people, two of them seriously. The U.S.-led multinational forces said the 34 were civilians, 26 of them women and children. There were no casualties among U.S. troops. Two attackers were killed, the forces said in a statement.
If 34 civilians, including 26 women and children, were wounded by a suicide bomber in Tel Aviv, it would be the number one story. When it's Iraqis wounded by U.S. troops, it's an afterthought attached to an article.
