Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc 

Just a coincidence, we know, but still. From the AP wire, Saturday, Jan. 8 (via Zemblan patriot B.K.):

U.S. BOMBS WRONG HOUSE IN IRAQ
At Least 5, Maybe 14, Killed By Mistake

From the Guardian, Saturday, January 8 (via the Daou Report):

PENTAGON TO RETHINK ITS TACTICS IN IRAQ

(And by the way, if there is a causal connection between the two, we sincerely hope it runs from Item 1 to Item 2 and not the other way round.)

UPDATE: In light of the story immediately following, we can only conclude that we did, alas, mistake the "post" item for the "propter" item, and vice-versa.
