    I agree, that article was strangely ignored by the media and even blogs. Apparently they just can't stop randomly shooting people at checkpoints or what looks to be drive by shootings from army humvees. Hell of a way to win a war and earn the trust of the people you are supposedly there to protect and liberate.
