Fatal Goof

oopsI may have to add this headline caption to my list of things to avoid.  I have goofed a lot in my years and obviously they have never reached the fatal stage.  This, however, is not a sad headline as you might first think.

This Fatal Goof was  “An instructor teaching his terror recruits how to make car bombs accidentally set off explosives in his demonstration on Monday, killing 21 of them in a huge blast.”  The good news for the Iraqi Sunni “insurgents” (the Associated Press still cannot call them terrorists) is that the bombs are quite effective…the bad news is that the bomb was quite effective though a bit early on the trigger.  The further bad news for the terrorists (see AP that’s not hard to say) is that the blast showed the military the location of their once-secret training camp just north of Bagdad.
