U.S. warplanes on Wednesday dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs and fired powerful howitzers at what military officials said were Sunni Muslim insurgents who had fired on Marines ringing this city. The airstrikes in three different sections of Fallujah were the most aggressive American response to guerrilla attacks since U.S. commanders and Iraqi officials signed a cease-fire deal earlier this month. [...] In Washington, President Bush said, "There are pockets of resistance, and our military along with Iraqis will make sure it's secure." He also said, "Most of Fallujah is returning to normal."
