Al Quaeda and Iraq
Via Tim Blair comes this gruesome TIME article describing a suicide bombing by a member of Ansar al-Islam, an Islamic militant group "supported, trained and reinforced " by al-Quaeda. The whole thing is worth reading, but the final paragraph is telling.
Ansar al-Islam has sent a clear reminder they are willing, and able, to strike anywhere. A month ago they assassinated a senior party and military official in the midst of negotiations with extremist elements. The Kurdish fighters along this frontline are anxiously awaiting the arrival on the battlefield of U.S. bombers and ground troops — to dispatch not only Saddam and Ba'ath Party, but also Ansar and its al-Qaeda backers.
