    In the single largest loss of life for the American military in Iraq in the past two years, five troops were killed in central Iraq, U.S. officials said.

    An Iraqi police officer and Iraqi interior ministry official said five rockets struck the Camp Victory base on the outskirts of Baghdad, AFP reported.

    The incident is under investigation and the names of the deceased are being withheld until next of kin is notified, the military said.

    The U.S. currently has roughly 46,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, down from a one-time high of roughly 170,000. The American military officially ended its combat operations in Iraq last August and reduced its forces to less than 50,000 troops.

    Only in America can you call still having 46,000 troops in a country as a "total pullout."



    With that twisted logic no wonder so many women have children out of wedlock...........................

    Add this to the horrible death toll of Americans out of Libya. Pretty bad stuff.

    Thank goodness no one drove an explosive laden truck into a Marine Barracks compound....
