US Military Attache in Syria shot

There are reports that America's Military Attache to Syria was shot, but is unhurt. The attack happened in the past fortnight.

He was patrolling the Syria-Iraq border - as he does once a month, to check for Syrian compliance with US demands - when he was shot from the Iraqi side of the border.

The US Embassies in Syria and Iraq did not comment, but the Bush Adminstration's propaganda radio station Radio Sawa reported the incident.

Nice. Please post the link for this, as well as any future stories you put up on your blog.

They will either blame Syria for this, or keep this a secret from the West (I haven't heard this story in Western media yet)
