Gaza blast kills 3 Americans

Breaking news: a bomb attack in the Gaza Strip has killed at least 3 American officials who were apparently touring to monitor progress on the peace process.

[Saeb] Erakat offered his condolences and condemned the attack.

"These people were here to help us," Erakat insisted, saying an attack on what he described as U.S. monitors was not in the interest of the Palestinian people. "I don't think this was a deliberate attack against the Americans."

Obviously, some of the "Palestinian people" felt it was in their interest to attack Americans. Would that be the Hamas-led "Palestinian people"? The Islamic Jihad "Palestinian people"? Or the al-Fatah "Palestinian people" who report to Yasser Arafat and blow people up as a sideline?

"We offer to have an immediate, joint Palestinian-American investigation committee to investigate the matter," Erakat said.

Perhaps we should have a US delegation meet up with Erekat and Arafat. I nominate the 4th Infantry Division, with an introduction by a contingent of F-18s.
