Suicide Bomber Kills 110 in Iraq

The terrorists are losing, but still have the ability to be deadly. This AP article also includes this incredible statement about a prior suicide bombing:

The deadliest previous single attack occurred Aug. 29, 2003, when a car bomb exploded outside a mosque in Najaf, killing more than 85 people, including Shiite leader Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim (search). Although officials never gave a final death toll, there were suspicions it may have been higher.

Of course they do not specify US or Iraqi officials, but given the timeframe of that attack, US officials would have been in charge. The insinuation that the United States would withold real casualty numbers goes back to Vietnam (of course) and is disgusting, but little more can be expected from the AP.
