We've already heard, this week, that the number of attacks in Iraq was at an all-time high over the past few months. Today comes news of another disturbing milestone: 76 bodies were found over a 24-hour period in Baghdad Wednesday. That's a record number of the kind of anonymous murders that now plague the war-torn city. The best news the Los Angeles Times can muster out of that sad story is that "only a few [of the discovered bodies] showed signs of torture." And there was other bad news out of Iraq yesterday -- 26 other Iraqis and two American soldiers were killed.
Another sad record
76 unidentified bodies are found in Baghdad.
