Iraq timeline

August 30, 2006 | By | Reply More

I really didn’t want to revisit all the disturbing events and revelations, but I made myself do so.   Think Progress has put together this comprehensive Iraq timeline, including ample links.

Here are the most recent three events on the timeline:

AUGUST 7, 2006: The top U.S. military official in Iraq, Gen. George Casey, says that civil war in Iraq is “certainly possible,” calling it “the most significant threat right now” in the country.

AUGUST 15, 2006: 3,438 Iraq civilians died in July, “the deadliest month of the war for Iraqi civilians.”

AUGUST 16, 2006: 1,666 bombs exploded in Iraq in July, “the highest monthly total of the war.”
