Air America

Well I am about done with my stint listening to this station. They were talking about the fact that 40 people died in the mosque. Air America's point was that people could have been praying, we know the times when they pray, and should not drop bombs during that time.

Marines waged a six-hour battle around the mosque with the militants holed up inside before a Cobra helicopter fired a Hellfire missile at the base of its minaret, and an F-16 dropped the bomb, said Marine Lt. Col. Brennan Byrne.

Witnesses said the strike came as worshippers had gathered for afternoon prayers

Yea I feel real sorry for the ones that were praying, but not so bad for the ones firing on American soldiers.
The only way the people praying could have gotten in the mosque was to go through a gun battle. I think in this case most would wait to pray another day, or find another mosque.
