FALLUJAH....The violence in Fallujah today was truly horrifying. An enraged mob killed four American civilians in the most barbaric way imaginable:

The attack began when insurgents fired assault rifles at two SUVs in a busy commercial area. Then, hundreds of people, young and old, gathered around the burning vehicles and shouted anti-American slogans.

Video footage showed the charred bodies on the streets, having been dragged from the vehicles and beaten with shovels. At least three bodies were seen hanging from a bridge in Fallujah afterwards.

They were then cut down, attached to donkey carts, and dragged a mile and a half through the city, witnesses told The Washington Post.

More pictures are here. I hope this isn't a sign of worse things to come.
