Al Qaeda in Iraq Labels Sunni VP a "Criminal"

Cause God knows it's not the ones blowing people up that are the criminals.

Al Qaeda in Iraq branded the country's Sunni vice president a "criminal" for participating in the American-backed government, and a suicide bomber Saturday struck army recruits west of Baghdad, killing at least 15 people in another warning to Sunnis not to cooperate with the Shiite leadership.

Little hypocritical don't you think?

The suicide attack in the mostly Sunni town of Abu Ghraib was the deadliest in a series of attacks that left at least 74 people dead nationwide.

So now al-qaeda in Iraq, which is a mostly-Sunni organization, are attacking Iraqi Sunni's? Makes you wonder what, if any, goal these groups have. You know, aside of spreading chaos, fear and death. Freedom fighters my ass.

The verbal attack on Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi was purportedly delivered by Al Qaeda leader Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri, in an audiotape posted on an extremist Web site only days after Iraqi authorities claimed he had been killed.

A ghost!

During the 21-minute speech, the Al Qaeda leader criticized Mr. al-Hashemi as "this criminal" who "relentlessly calls" for American troops to remain in Iraq. Mr. al-Hashemi has resisted calls by fellow Sunni leaders to quit the Shiite-dominated government.

"So, we will kill Sunni's to show how we disapprove of the Vice Presidents actions. This, in turn, should further confuse the world as to just how educated we are."
