Another sign of division between Iraqi insurgents and al Qaeda operatives emerged Monday when insurgents in Ramadi announced a pact against their former al Qaeda allies — which prompted a round of assassinations between the two sides.
Reuters reported that Sunni Arabs in Ramadi have begun targeting the terrorist organization in the wake of a devastating al Qaeda attack on Ramadi police recruits on Jan. 5 that killed scores. The larger picture is one of divergent interests: Iraqi insurgents who once allied with al Qaeda against U.S. forces are now looking in part to negotiations in Baghdad to achieve their political goals.
