The fog of CNN:

Coalition troops working their way north toward the capital have been engaged in heavy fighting with Iraqi forces -- particularly in the southern cities of Nasiriya and Tikrit.

And from the same article, several paragraphs later:

The Hammurabi Division, which was west of Baghdad, was moving south in hopes of reinforcing the Medina, and another division -- which was around Tikrit in the north -- was moving in to replace the Hammurabi, U.S. officials said.

(Emphasis added in both quotes.)

Isn't Tikrit north of Baghdad? Well, yes. At least according to the map found here in PDF format. Tikrit is located on the Tigris River a little less than 100 miles northeast of Baghdad. It's really big news if we've got troops engaged in heavy fighting (or, for that matter, any other kind of fighting) there.

Or mayb we jst need to proofred.

UPDATE: I could do with some of my own proofreading. Tikrit is northwest of Baghdad. Not northeast. D'oh!
