Turkey Bombs Iraq

The U.S. approved Turkish missions against the PKK haven't gotten much press since they began a couple weeks ago. The Turkish government is claiming its latest attack has killed more than 150 Kurds.
Rear Adm. Greg Smith, director of communications for the American-led forces in Iraq, said Turkey had notified American officials in advance of the latest raid, as is customary, telling them it was a reconnaissance flight, not a strike mission.

"They tell us where they are going and what their mission is," he said. "The first three missions were all identified as strike missions. They said their intentions were to go and drop ordnance and they told us that at the time."
