Dear Sahar: Please know I am deeply saddened by the death of your beloved sister-in-law. Thank you for sharing this painful personal experience in your blog. It is a dreadful, yet necessary, reminder that these bombings are not just about the numbers of people killed but the profound impact they have on the fabric of Iraqi society, in families like yours. I hope both pols and readers alike will take note. To me, this blog, once again, brings the humanity back to the war, and for that I thank you.


Deepest sympathy to you and your family, and especially the children who lost their mother.


Dear PM al Maliki:

You do not have a security breach. You have a security abyss. And too many people--dead or mangled--have fallen into it.

My condolences to you and your family, Sahar, and to all who have suffered losses.
