Iraqi VP dodges bomb

Even the VP of Iraq is not safe:
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's Shiite vice president escaped an apparent assassination attempt Monday after a bomb exploded in municipal offices where he was making a speech, knocking him down with the force of the blast that left at least 10 people dead.
The attack sent another message that suspected Sunni militants could strike anywhere despite a major security crackdown across the capital. Hours before the blast, U.S. military teams with bomb-sniffing dogs combed the building, said workers at the site.
(emphasis mine)

This of course just confirms what Dick Cheney has been telling us. We're making progress, freedom's on the march, we're turning a corner, etc.
