Kaloogian and his party took on a recent trip to Iraq. Here's his
We took this photo of downtown Baghdad while we were in Iraq. Iraq
(including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people
believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring
in the country and screams and shouts about it - in part because many
journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism.

This fraud is covered in the diary section of the DailyKos (anthonyL).

same building to fix on the intersection. Another has sent the whole thing
to a dozen or so Turkish news organizations. Several posters are forwarding
the detective work to the Busby campaign.
