More Fisk. This is kind of weird: Robert Fisk claims to have discovered evidence that the explosion that killed 62 Iraqis last Friday was caused by an American missile, yet he's not reporting it himself -- it's contained in an Independent story written by another reporter, Cahal Milmo. It will be interesting to see what Fisk writes about this tomorrow, assuming he does.

If this proves true, it won't be a huge surprise. The Pentagon has been very circumspect about this one, unlike a similar, earlier incident, in which American officials pugnaciously asserted that it was an Iraqi missile gone astray, or even a deliberate attack by Saddam on his own people.

All the more reason to get this over with as quickly as possible.
