The top American military commander in Iraq, Lt. Gen. David McKiernan, blames Saddam Hussein loyalists for this week's spate of deadly attacks on American troops around the country. The U.S. Central Command reports another American combat death Thursday. NPR's Nick Spicer reports. (Please note that during some feeds of All Things Considered, this report mistakenly referred to Prime Minister Tony Blair as Britain's head of state. Britain is a monarchy, where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been head of state for the past half century.)
