Al Qaeda Takes Responsibility For Green Zone Blast

In an unbiased media world this fact would not be hidden in so many reports…

Al Qaeda in Iraq took responsibility for the blast today in the Green Zone that killed 8 officials.

Time magazine reports:

In an assault apparently aimed at chilling negotiations between the Iraqi government and a faction of the insurgency, the Iraqi Parliament, located in Baghdad’s high-security Green Zone, suffered a bomb attack. An official at the Ministry of the Interior told TIME that the bomber was wearing a suicide vest and was a guard for one of the members of parliament.

Within an hour of the explosion, a message from the al-Qaeda-controlled Islamic State in Iraq was posted on a prominent militant website, muslm.net, calling the blast a “message” to anyone who cooperates with “the occupier and its agents.” It said ominously, “We will reach you wherever you are”

The extremists want to stop efforts of reconciliation between the Iraqi government and an Iraqi-led, nationalist faction of the insurgency that has turned on al-Qaeda in recent weeks.

Last month… The same day that House democrats voted to flee Iraq to “go fight Al Qaeda”…
Al Qaeda released a video claiming that they had won Iraq.
They both celebrated.

HotAir has the video of the blast.
Iraq the Model has more on the terrorist blasts today.

The Iraqi parliament will hold an extraordinary session tomorrow to condemn ‘terrorism’ following the suicide bombing.

Update: Richard Miniter was at the Green Zone during the bombing and has a report.
