Grand theft slaughter

Cars stolen in US used in suicide attacks;

Investigators believed the cars were stolen by local car thieves in US cities, then smuggled to waiting ships at ports in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Houston, among other cities. Terrorism specialists said they believed Iraqi insurgents preferred American stolen cars because they tended to be larger, blended in more easily with US convoys, and were harder to identify as stolen.

Not sure we need to see this stuff reported. I'd prefer to read about crew being busted following a stealth investigation. Reporting it only serves as a warning to these guys that the authorities are on to them.

Oh well, at least we can now view car thieves as terrorists and call for tougher legislation.
