The US ambush that also netted 5 Syrian border guards

Austin Bay analyzes the attack on the convoy making a break for Syria.

"...Last week's U.S. attack on a convoy near the Iraqi-Syrian border (south of the Iraqi town of Qaim), a convoy possibly transporting 'major figures' in Saddam's regime, supplies a quick military and political snapshot of the War on Terror.

"It's a sketchy snapshot, one that catches the sharp high-technology angles, the murky targets and troubling international political grayness....

"... its larger messages are fairly clear. Rogue states that aid and abet terrorists are erasing their own borders. After 9-11, incomplete intelligence won't stop a counter-attack. Dictators who play hide and seek with weapons of mass destruction won't stall one, either."
