MOSUL, Iraq, March 29 (Reuters) - Policemen who took part in the reprisal shootings of scores of men in northwest Iraq this week were arrested but then freed again to prevent unrest, the provincial governor said on Thursday.

Hours after truck bombs killed 85 people on Tuesday in a Shi'ite area of Tal Afar, up to 70 Sunni Arab men were shot dead in a town which only a year ago was held up by U.S. President George W. Bush as an example of progress towards peace

Lieberman was on with Wolf---who did a pretty good job of at least pointing out this violence and Michael Ware telling him that any westerner would "barely last twenty minutes out there." Holy Joe says that the troops feel more confidence so the surge must be working...errrr...or something like that....

UPDATE: Ware responded to Lieberman. I'll have that video shortly....
