Think it’s safe for everyone in the Green Zone? Think again. Our forces cannot even keep themselves (or anyone else) safe in their protected area.
Insurgents penetrated the American-controlled Green Zone today, setting off a pair of bombs within seconds of each other and killing five people, including three Americans, and wounding 20 others.
Witnesses said that at least one of the explosions was set off by a suicide bomber and that the second may have been as well. Neither American nor Iraqi government officials had any immediate explanation as to how the bombs were smuggled inside.
