From the Washington Examiner via Think Progress: "The U.S. command in Baghdad this week ballyhooed the killing of a key al-Qaida leader but later admitted that the military had declared him dead a year ago." The Examiner says the military is vowing to be more careful when it comes to announcing "significant kills" in the future.
