With some dead people

Interesting phrasing from a US military spokesman going beyond their previous description of such events as (using the IRA term) "spectaculars" --

"We have some indicators that they may be planning on executing kind of a large media type event," said Major General John Kelly, commander of the I Marine Expeditionary Force in western Iraq.

It likely indicates that the White House strategy for the inevitable upward spike in violence as the surge impact wears off will be to blame the media for covering it. Which was also their strategy before the surge.
