Understatement of the Day. The Month. The Year.

From an AP Dispatch today, March 23, 2009:

    US officials said earlier this month that Iraq was experiencing its lowest levels of violence since 2003.

    But since then there have been several major bombings.

The AP dispatch told of a suicide bombing in Diyala province, which killed 25. earlier, in the Abu Ghraib district, another bombing killed 8.  And, AP added--

    Another attack in Abu Ghraib on 10 March killed 33 people.

    In the same week, more than 30 people died in an attack on a police recruitment centre and another 10 were killed in an explosion at a cattle market in Babel province.
