A headline at Reuters reads “U.S. Troops on Shooting Spree After Attack in Iraq”:

Gunmen fired anti-tank rockets at a U.S. armored vehicle in the tense Iraqi town of Falluja, sending U.S. troops into a shooting spree that killed two Iraqis, residents said on Thursday.

Since when is defending oneself against rockets a “spree” as if the troops were engaging in some wild shopping contest?

At least 15 Iraqis died in the clashes between demonstrators and U.S. troops last month. On May 1, a grenade attack wounded seven U.S. soldiers in the town.

Since when is a grendade attack associated with “demonstrations”? Reuters obtained no comments from American officials.
