Fallujans Demonstrate Against U.S. Presence

Juan Cole reports in his Informed Comment blog that thousands of Fallujans demonstrated on Saturday, outside the gates of that city, against the U.S. presence. They demanded that the U.S. troops restore basic services immediately and then leave the city, so residents could return and begin to put their lives back together. According to Cole, there was an eyewitness reporter on the scene who called in this report. Cole was unable to find any mention of it in Western news sources or wire services.
