Biting the Hand

From the BBC:

"Iraq envoy accuses US of killing

"Iraq's ambassador to the UN has demanded an inquiry into what he said was the "cold-blooded murder" of his young unarmed relative by US marines.
Samir Sumaidaie said his 21-year-old cousin was shot as he helped marines who were carrying out searches at his village in the restive Anbar province.
Mr Sumaidaie said the ramifications of such a "serious crime" were enormous for both the US and Iraq.
US officials said the allegations would be thoroughly investigated."

According to the family, it would appear that the young man was happy to practice his English when the American troops came knocking at the door.

Of course, I'm certain that some of the conservative media pundits (for which read "propaganda catspaws") will castigate the Ambassador to the UN from Iraq for being so ungrateful as to call for an investigation of the US troops who have liberated his country.
