Bombing kills 11 at Jordanian Embassy
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) —A car bomb shattered a street outside the walled Jordanian Embassy on Thursday, killing at least ll people — including two children — and raising concerns that Iraq’s violence could be broadening from resistance to the U.S. occupation toward a terrorist insurgency.
More than 50 people were wounded by the explosion, the deadliest attack on a non-military target since Baghdad fell to American forces April 9.
Elsewhere in Baghdad, gunmen attacked a U.S. patrol on a busy shopping street, sparking a fierce hours-long gunbattle between Iraqis with rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles and Americans with armored Bradley fighting vehicles.
Two U.S. soldiers were reported killed Wednesday night in another Baghdad firefight — the first American combat deaths since late Friday. Guerrilla attacks have now killed 55 U.S. soldiers since May I, when President Bush declared an end to major combat.
Cracks in California aren’t San Andreas’ fault
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — What began as yet another political novelty from the nation’s most populous state has morphed into a spectacle remarkable even by California standards.
With everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to porn prince Larry Flynt jumping into the race to recall beleaguered Gov. Gray Davis, the reality TV show that has commandeered California politics has turned permanently, seriously weird.
“Sadly,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday as she ruled out running, California is “going to be engaged in an election that is becoming more and more like a carnival every day.”
And that was before Schwarzenegger shocked even his own closest political advisers by announcing on “The Tbnight Show” that he was getting in the race.
Its hard to look at California’s election slate without giggling — or panicking. Under the recall law, drafted during a wave of populism in 1911, it takes only $3,500 and signatures from 65 voters to run. The election is set for Oct. 7, but a slew of court challenges could delay or even call the whole thing off.
