At least 22 people are dead and 50 wounded from an attack today at a U.S. Military installation in Mosul.
Pentagon officials say assailants using rockets and mortars attacked a U.S. and Iraqi forward operating base in Mosul.
Its believed that the dining hall at the base was hit. The attack came during lunchtime at the base, when presumably the potential for casualties would be great.
White House spokesperson Scott McClellan says the mortar attack on the installation shows that "the enemies of freedom will continue to seek to derail the transition" to a free and democratic Iraq.
McClellan said the president is determined to stay the course in Iraq.
