For the first time in Gulf War II, the U.S. Air Force has hit downtown Baghdad with "bunker busting" bombs. A B-2 stealth bomber dropped two of the 4,700-pound, satellite-guided GBU-28 munitions on a major communications tower on the east bank of Tigris River, according to Ha'Aretz.The bunker-busters were parts of massive coalition bombing effort last night. Combat aircraft dropped bombs "just about as fast as we can load them," Capt. Thomas Parker, aboard the USS Kitty Hawk in the Persian Gulf, told the paper.
