It's no Lam-bear-ghini

It's no Lam-bear-ghini 26 Jul 2010 A greedy bear took a car for a joyride when he dived into the vehicle in search of a peanut butter sandwich.

When cops arrived they found the panicked animal thrashing around inside the Toyota Corolla.

Afghanistan war logs: How US marines sanitised record of bloodbath

Afghanistan war logs: How US marines sanitised record of bloodbath --War logs show how marines gave cleaned up accounts of incident in which they killed 19 civilians 26 Jul 2010 Brevity is the hallmark of military reporting, but even by those standards the description of one especially disastrous event is remarkably short: "The patrol return to base." It started with a suicide bomb. On 4 March 2007 a convoy of US marines, who had arrived in Afghanistan three weeks earlier, were hit by an explosives-rigged minivan outside the southeastern city of Jalalabad. The marines made a frenzied escape, opening fire with automatic weapons as they tore down a six-mile stretch of highway, hitting almost anyone in their way -- teenage girls in the fields, motorists in their cars, old men as they walked along the road. Nineteen unarmed civilians were killed and 50 wounded. None of this, however, was captured in the initial military account, written by the marines themselves. It simply says that, simultaneous with the suicide explosion, "the patrol received small arms fire from three directions".
