FOOD SHORTAGES?….Yes, I know that

FOOD SHORTAGES?….Yes, I know that Reuters is basically in league with Saddam and therefore not to be trusted, but this doesn’t sound good:

Renuart said he could not confirm reports that food rations had been cut for some frontline U.S. units. Reuters correspondents with U.S. troops south of Baghdad have said their rations have been cut to one meal a day from three.

It’s probably nothing, but it sounds kind of disturbing anyway. I wonder what’s up?

UPDATE: Josh Marshall says there are other reports to back this up.
