More he-said-she-said from Iraq: Fallujah's police chief, among others, is claiming that yesterday's air strike on a supposed safe house took out nothing but women and children.

Unlike last month's wedding fiasco, there doesn't seem to be actual evidence to make the US military look like liars. There is, however, a curiously parsable statement from the interim PM:

"We know that a house which had been used by terrorists had been hit. We welcome this hit on terrorists anywhere in Iraq."

Yeah yeah, translation errors etc. But "had been used"? How far back, exactly, does that past tense extend?
