US Clouds Iraqi Civilian Deaths

"Americans were outraged when 3,000 people were killed in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001," writes Derrick Jackson in the Boston Globe. "Now, between Afghanistan and Iraq, our vengeance has killed way more than that. We rightly demanded that the world care about our innocent dead. Now we wrongly ignore the people we killed. We not only bombed innocent people, we bombed our own innocence."
