Col. Hunt just chatted with the battallion commander at the palace, who he used to command. Among other things, the commander emphasized the discipline and care these guys are taking to avoid civilian casualties. Constantly, rolling into the heart of Baghdad, he said, you would hear: Ceasefire! Ceasefire. It’s a civilian. Ceasefire. They need to hear that on al Jazeera.

Raised at one presidential palace. Were evidently in another palace, too, in the city. [Update: FNC anchor said this and I believed him. Seems to have not happened. The shower dude (see 1:37) clarified that we are not conquering, by freeing the Iraqis. A couple of guys raised some U. of Georgia flag, where they both went to school, I think. Sky news reporter said he saw a U.S. flag across the water from where he is. Again, I have not seen one. ]

Ok, We Said That Already

Our Fav. Col. Hunt

Just said the Batttle of Baghdad “is over.” From a tactical standpoint, you have the airport, you have the Baath party headquarters, you come and go as you please, and you take the man’s home–you’ve won. There’s still the northern part of the country, but this is a major victory. (This is FNC still.)

Not to pile on Rod or anything, although, why not? But I covered the 1984 Dallas convention. The temperature on the day before it opened was 101. The temperature the day before that had been 106. The National Weather Service, as quoted by the Dallas Morning News, explained the drop by saying that a “very weak cold front” had passed through Dallas.
