The American Embassy in Baghdad...

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A rocket attack on the U.S. embassy compound in Baghdad's Green Zone killed two Americans and wounded four, a U.S. embassy spokesman said on Saturday. "It hit near the embassy building," embassy spokesman Bob Callahan said. "There are two dead and four who are wounded...all Americans."

The next 24 hours are going to be a bloodbath. The escalation of violence in the last week should lead us to expect no less. If it was a rocket or mortar attack as is being reported the insurgents are very brave, it is my understanding that such attacks can be traced with some success.

Will they be successful in keeping people from voting? I suspect so, at least to some degree. What a disaster, what a mess.
