Welcome to Baghdad...boom!

One more point to note about our arrival. As we were receiving our "Welcome to Baghdad" speech, two suicide car bombs exploded in succession near the base compound, close enough that we heard the blasts and saw the smoke rising. One of those cars ignited a fuel truck, which caused a lot of smoke. Fortunately, there were no Americans hurt or killed in this incident, and there are now two less insurgents in this war.
