Unless I'm misreading the headline, the Nat'l Post of Canada made an error. A ghost is leading the fight against militants in Iraq? The details say it's the daughter of the killed woman, but the headline says it's the dead politician herself, doesn't it?
As a side note, Canadian press is worth reading. They're our neighbors, plus a lot of interesting things happen in Canada, believe it or not. A few sites worth checking:
Toronto Globe & Mail
Winnipeg Free Press
