Which is presumably why the occupation authorities no longer even distribute their overnight security warnings to humanitarian organizations in Baghdad. If they did the reports would show that US forces are now being attacked up to 50 times every night, that missiles are being fired at US planes almost every day, that neither Baghdad nor Basra airports are safe enough to open .'
