Insurgents fighting Al Queda within Iraq


Gadfly and provocateur Christopher Hitchens has an article in Slate about how some local insurgents in Iraq aren’t taking any more of Zarqawi’s crap. An interesting, if not entirely surprising development, given that Al Queda in Iraq has been bombing fellow Muslims and generally using the strife and nationalistic feelings of the population to their own nefarious ends. Of course the end result is more dead Iraqis, but at least they aren’t succumbing to Bin Laden’s nihilist nonsense.
