. This attack has only cemented my opinion about the war. Going into Iraq was a horrible, horrible mistake that will haunt the US for decades. Bush and his supporters should be ashamed of the chaos and threats to the US they have created. Iraq was not a threat to the US; now it is. I thought the idea after 9/11 was to weaken or destroy al Qaeda, not strengthen it and allow it to take root where it never did before.

"The message that the attack on the base sends to average Iraqis is that if the Americans can't protect their own soldiers on their own bases, how are they going to protect you,"

"Let Bush, Blair and Allawi know that we are coming and that we will chase them all away, God willing,"

An image then shows a map of the base, as one of the gunmen points out locations using a military knife. One location is marked "the dining hall" in Arabic.

A later outdoor video image shot on Tuesday, when the attack occurred shows a fireball rising from the distance with the accompanying sound of the explosion. A final image shot from a vehicle driving past the base shows the torn white tent that served as the base mess hall.
