Agence France-Presse reports that "three US troops were wounded, one seriously, after Iraqi soldiers used a Red Crescent ambulance to stage an attack in southern Iraq." This is another case of Saddam Hussein's terrorists aping the Palestinian Arabs; an article in The Lancet (link in PDF format) describes how Palestinian terrorists use Red Crescent ambulances to smuggle weapons. And of course the State Department faults Israel because it has "obstructed the movement of and occasionally fired upon medical personal [sic] and ambulances."
