U.S. kills seven in Iraq

Notice the title of this front-page Washington Post story: "U.S. Troops Kill Seven Suspected Iraqi Insurgents." I guess these are the first Iraqis we’ve killed since the end of major combat operations, or, maybe even during. I just found it odd.

"U.S. troops aboard an AH-64 Apache helicopter killed seven suspected insurgents Thursday night who were preparing to launch a rocket attack on a U.S. base near Tikrit. A follow-up search party then captured more than 900 enemy rockets stored in nearby bunkers, a military spokesman said here Friday."
