Top Investigative Reporter: US Spies on Iraqi PM
A top U.S. investigative reporter says the Bush administration has

I’m kind of trouble by another Woodward statement:
According to the Post, Woodward also says that last year’s troop surge in

track and kill insurgent leaders.
I wonder what that means. Does anyone have a clue??
