The Great Raid

James Taranto at Opinion Journal points out this great CNN story, about soldiers who raided a Baghdad home, where they were shown a newborn baby girl with spina bifida. The soldiers immediately went into action to help the infant, having her examined at the base and working with Senator Saxby Chambliss to arrange her travel to the United States, where a surgeon has volunteered to operate for free. Without medical care, the baby was expected to die within weeks.

So much for John Kerry's claim that U.S. soldiers conducting raids are "terrorizing kids and children."

Friday Update: The baby has now begun her journey to the United States.
