((The two Black Hawk helicopters came down in the northern city of Mosul...witnesses say they collided before crashing to the ground... the deaths bring to more than three dozen the number of soldiers who have been killed in helicopter crashes in less than two weeks. The tragic news comes on the day that an uncharacteristically united Iraqi Governing Council came forward with the words that Washington wanted to hear -- that Iraq will be handed back a new Iraqi government by next June: AHMAD CHALABI/Iraqi Governing Council "Which will have full sovereignty, internationally recognized, and the end of the occupation." That means the end of the US-led administration in Iraq, but NOT the end of the American military presence...merely a change of status, from "occupation force" to "guest." ON-CAMERA: WITH NOW MORE THAN 400 AMERICAN LIVES LOST IN IRAQ SINCE THE INVASION BEGAN, THE WHITE HOUSE ADMINISTRATION FACES INCREASING PRESSURE TO FIND SOME WAY OUT ITS IRAQI DILEMMA. BUT PULLING OUT ANYTIME SOON IS NOT AN OPTION. PRESIDENT BUSH SAID TROOPS WILL REMAIN UNTIL IRAQ IS "FREE AND PEACEFUL." At the moment, it's anything but. Another American soldier was killed and two were wounded in Baghdad Saturday in an attack that has become an almost daily routine: a homemade roadside bomb that was detonated as a US military convoy passed by. More Americans have died this month than in any other month since the war...and the month's not over yet...all the more reason that Washington can't wait for the time that Iraq's problems become Iraq's problem. cd, cbs news, baghdad))
