Crowds Celebrate 13 Deaths in Iraq Blast
By ROBERT H. REID, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A car bomb shattered a convoy of Westerners in Baghdad Monday, killing at least 13 people, including three General Electric workers and two bodyguards. Crowds rejoiced over the attack, dancing around a charred body and shouting "Down with the USA!"...

Now, before we get so completely mad at Iraqis for taking part in this "celebration", read the bit below that is buried TWENTY THREE PARAGRAPHS under the opening.

...Iraqi bystanders scooped up victims and loaded them into vehicles or pickup trucks to speed them to hospitals. Body parts and fragments of clothing lay scattered around the street...
Maybe the headline should have been "Iraqis rescue ambushed convoy"?

Nah. No one would want to read that...at CBS.
