Five More Soldiers

Bush is committed to continuing this, but still can't, or won't, explain why we're really there:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Two roadside bomb attacks have killed five U.S. soldiers in Iraq, according to the U.S. military.

Four Task Force Lightning Soldiers were killed and two others were wounded Sunday when a bomb exploded near their patrol in Diyala Province, the military said.

Another U.S. soldier was killed and two others were wounded Sunday by a roadside bomb blast in northwest Baghdad, the military said. The soldier was involved in a route-clearance mission, the military said.

The deaths brought to 3,233 the number of U.S. troops killed in the Iraq war.
