Is that al-Qaida with an American or Israeli accent?

BAGHDAD - Gunmen in Iraqi military uniforms raided a village outside Baghdad and killed at least 24 people in an execution-style attack, apparently targeting a Sunni group that revolted against al-Qaida and helped turn the tide of the Iraq war, authorities said Saturday.

The attack late Friday comes amid increasing concerns that insurgents will take advantage of Iraq's political turmoil to further destabilize the country, nearly a month after parliamentary elections failed to give any candidate a decisive win. Many fear a drawn-out political debate could spill over into violence and complicate American efforts to speed up troop withdrawals in the coming months.

Some of the victims in Friday's attack suffered broken arms and legs, indicating they had been tortured before they were shot, police said. One witness said many of the victims were so badly brutalized that they were "beyond recognition." Five of the dead were women.

At least seven people were found alive, bound with handcuffs, authorities said.

Baghdad's security spokesman, Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, said the killings about 15 miles south of Baghdad bear "an obvious al-Qaida hallmark." Police cordoned off the area and forced residents to stay inside their homes as helicopters swarmed overhead and authorities searched for suspects.

P.S. Will witnesses say they had American or Israeli accents? If it was the same al-Qaida that attacked us on 9-11-2001 they will. Hell, Dick Cheney might know a few of them personally. Isn't it all becoming obvious now where the source of all this terror is coming from? Oh yes it is. That's what the FEMA camps are for.
