Image of Hotel?[edit]

Is the image being used for this article really show the result of the bombing? There is no 6 story building in that image. I found this image: http://www.1stmob.com/op24.htm of what appears to be the actual hotel post bombing. You can clearly see the first story is completely destroyed. If the image in the article can not be proven to be of the actual bombing, it should be removed as it implies a greater level of destruction than what occurred.

Errata[edit]

An E-6 is not an officer in the United States Army (or its equivalent an officer in any other country's military). It is an enlisted personnel. I'm not going to change it, or quibble over the term "non-commissioned officer", but it's a mistake, clear and simple, in a featured article.--Reedmalloy (talk) 05:34, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Sadly, the primary editor has gone (maybe forever). So if you don't fix error(s), I think noone else can.--AM (talk) 17:46, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
