(END SOT) The five year war in Iraq has now


claimed 4000 American lives.


The sobering milestone was reached over
the weekend...when four U-S troops


were killed by a roadside bomb.


Dana Perino/While House Press Secretary


President Bush thinks that every single


loss is tragic, from the very first
several years ago to the ones that
sacrificed yesterday.


Insurgents have recently stepped up
attacks on the U-S protected Green Zone


and on civilians across the country.
More than 60 Iraqis were killed in


various incidents on Sunday and a new
report says 90,000 have died since the


conflict began.



Tara Mergener Bridge/White House:


President Bush spent part of his day on
a 2-hour conference call with General


David Petraeus, the U-S commander in
Iraq and Ambassador Ryan Crocker.


Both men are scheduled to testify next
month on Capitol Hill where Petraeus


is expected to recommend no
additional troop reductions in Iraq
beyond


those already scheduled.


Perino again


Of course the President of the United
States wants the troops to come home,


but he's going to do that when
conditions are right.


The President's troop surge last year
lowered violence in the Baghdad


area....and there is concern pulling
too many troops out could erase the
gains


made. But critics say that has to be
balanced with the rising death toll and


American public opinion that remains
against the war. Tara Mergener, for CBS
News, Washington

A man in Italy who apparently
hypnotizes bank clerks and cashiers and
then makes off with cash.


Here he is in action- one bank
teller said he leaned over and told her
"look into my eyes." The next thing she
remembers was an empty till.


And a supermarket cashier asked to
change a 100 dollar Euro note- about
157 dollars.. apparently handed over
more than 12- hundred dollars.


Police say they think the hypnotist
has a female accomplice.

That is because Leonid Stadnyk
(STAD-NIK) is the world's tallest man.


At eight foot, five inches, Stadnyk
was forced to quit his job as a
veterinarian when he got too big for
his bicycle.


He tried walking to work, but his
feet were frostbitten because he can't
afford shoes to fit his feet.


After hearing his story, someone
recently presented him with a giant
bicycle.


Leonid's growth spurt started at age
14 after a brain operation apparently
overstimulated growth hormones. Doctors
say that he will keep growing.
