Barzani Slams Turks

Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani on Monday lashed out at Turkey for its air strikes on Iraq. Turkey says it hit terror bases.

Bush strongly backed Turkey with a call to PM Erdogan.

The US had depended heavily on the Kurds in Iraq. Is this the beginniing of a major rift?

Turkey says that its Dec. 16 air strikes, involving 50 jets, killed 150 PKK guerrillas. This is a larger death toll than earlier suspected and won’t improve Barzani’s mood.
