Was someone trying to say something?

A suicide bomber attacked the Turkish embassy in Baghdad, wounding several people.

We also get more from Bush's hatchet boys on how wonderful the "new Iraq" is. But the Reuters correspondent does a good job in contextualizing these claims:
[US Commerce Secretary Don] Evans, traveling under heavy guard, insisted Iraq was safer than most people believed. "This is not the dismal, frightened area I expected to see having watched the news coverage in the United States over the past six months," he said.

He dismissed incidents such as recent car bombings in a country where American occupying forces are under daily attack as "isolated acts of terrorism."
Yes... Iraq is so safe that Evans doesn't actually need that heavy guard when he's wandering around. He just likes being surrounded by men in uniform, no doubt.
