Both sides have suffered casualties. US soldiers crossed over after Damascus was given an ultimatum Thursday, Nov. 24, to hand over a group of senior commanders belonging to Abu Musab al Zarqawi's al Qaeda force. According to US intelligence, the group had fled to Syria to escape an American attack in Mosul. Syrian border guards opened fire on the American force.Now this is not confirmed by any of the media sources that I have checked BBC reuters aljazeera CNN So I'm guessing it is probably false. But time will tell. This is spreading through the Blogsphere at the moment. I guess this shows that the blogsphere 2 can fall foul of reporting that surrounded Liam Lawlor's death.As the saying goes don't let the truth get in the way of a good story. Little green Footballs commentors are loving the idea.
