al-Qaeda Murders 57 More Muslims in Iraq

There's no question that al-Qaeda has been waiting to try and destabilize Iraq. The only question is now if the Iraqis can weed out these sleepers in an efficient manner. You can tell its al-Qaeda when the solution to an issue is always indiscriminate murder.

AP: BAGHDAD (AP) -- A suicide bomber targeting Shiite pilgrims in southern Iraq killed 30 people, just hours after a wave of bombings hit Shiite areas in Baghdad and killed 27 others, officials said.

The coordinated attacks targeting Shiites bore the hallmarks of Sunni insurgents linked to al-Qaida and added to a deepening sectarian crisis in Iraq that exploded just as soon as the last Americans troops left in mid-December. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
