This is what my postcard to my Representative and two Senators (all Republican war-supporters, by the way) said:
FROM CNN: "US Says Bomb Hit Wrong House in Iraq. Strike aimed at insurgents killed 6 family members
Washington (CNN) - A bomb that killed six civilians Monday near Baiji, Iraq, missed its target by 65 feet (20 meters) and hit the wrong house, military officials said. The bomb, which was dropped by a US fighter plane, was aimed at a building that three men entered after planting a roadside bomb as an unmanned surveillance plane watched from overhead, the officials said. A US Navy F-14 Tomcat fighter jet strafed the building before the bomb was dropped, according to a US military statement released after the nighttime attack."
It was not 6 people who were killed, it was 14. CNN cannot get it right either.
Furthermore, we have no evidence at all that the men were really planting a roadside bomb. That is what someone watching the drone video THINKS they saw. They have no evidence and no proof. And no trial and no jury. Just DEATH. And in this case, there was death handed out to the definately innocent.
I do wish that the people who started this war could truly, madly, deeply, completely, totally understand what it feels like to hold your own child in your arms with half their skull blown off. Maybe that understanding will come to them when they face God and stay with them for all of eternity.

I am so sad. I am so angry.
