Al-Qaeda Takes Tikrit?

When Donald Douglas told me this news, I was stunned. Iraq is falling apart and the terrorists are taking over: BAGHDAD (AP) — Al-Qaida-inspired militants pushed deeper into Iraq’s Sunni heartland Wednesday, swiftly conquering Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit as soldiers and security forces abandoned their posts and yielded ground once controlled by U.S. forces.
