IRAQ UPDATE: Midnight/4 pm (EST)

by Doug Pritchard

Lisa Martens reports that the latest attack was really scary, a lot closer,

and they felt the building rattling. It went on for 30-40 minutes. They

took “shelter” in the ground floor of the Al-Dar which has the windows

boarded over and stocks of food / water. They are OK and doing all right.

No word from the other team in the tent at the Al Wathba Water Treatment

Plant.

She said that the Iraqi people are amazing, strong. They are calm and

collected and encouraging each other and our team. A 15 year old boy said to

her today, “I want you to go home. I’m used to this but you are not.”

The team is encouraged by all the anti-war actions around the world. They

say to tell EVERYONE you meet at these vigils and demonstrations, “IRAQIS

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOMS OF THEIR HEARTS.”
