#1 And while the murder rate has dropped from as many as 60 a day in Baghdad immediately after the invasion to something closer to about 16 a day, that is still almost double the prewar crime rate, according to the Baghdad morgue and human rights groups.

I wonder if this prewar crime rate includes all the people Sammy and his henchmen murdered?

#3 Probably not. The ones the Muhkbarat popped didn't make it to the morgue.

#5 By the way, as one who has been a serious critic of media coverage in Iraq, it really is time for me to give kudos to the Christian Science Monitor which has consistently tried to give a fair view of what's happening in Iraq. This isn't the first story like this that they've done, and they were writing this kind of material well before the current stink about biased coverage.
