US says Iraqi insurgent threat grows again

Tuesday, April 26, 2005

US says Iraqi insurgent threat grows again. Can't be right? The elections, those purple-blue fingers , they were all a success - right?

"Iraqi insurgents have shown improved coordination and greater tactical sophistication in a new surge of attacks following a sharp decline after national elections in January, US defense officials said.
The increased violence comes amid a stalemate over the formation of a new Iraqi government, which US officials worry is dissipating an opportunity opened by the January 30 elections to undercut Sunni support for the insurgency.
"It's not over. Nobody thinks this is over," said a senior defense official, who asked not to be identified. "

Say it ain't so Georgie.
