Well, He Won't be Causing Any More Trouble

In what amounts to a throwaway line in a recent column (and apparently since followed up by a whole column - I would link to it but registration is required and I found the Philly Inquirer registration process peculiarly problematic) about how the conditions in Iraq have deteriorated since her most recent previous visit in January, Trudy Rubin wrtes, "my wonderful translator, a young doctor named Yasser Saliee, was shot dead by U.S. soldiers on Frday as he drove on an errand."

I can't help but wonder if he's been counted as a dead "insurgent" by the "we don't do body counts" Pentagon.
