Providing information to unwitting victims on a "don't-need-to-know" basis since 1974.

Another day, another tragedy in Iraq.

Note the part where the random Iraqi on the street blames the United States, for "not getting Saddam Hussein."

Detached neutral observers are probably able to figure out that Saddam Hussein, or his power structure, probably didn't perpetrate this. Detached neutral observers might know that blaming America for the immediate bombing itself, in the strictest sense, isn't entirely fair.

But Iraq is not a country populated by detached neutral observers, and neither is any other country, at least when it comes to their own backyard.

"I told you so" is extremely cold comfort when the consequences involve the death of innocent people.
