The Professionals Behind the UN Attack

(Washington Post) Robert Baer - The UN bombing in Baghdad has all the markings of a professional terrorist attack, the same expertise we saw in Lebanon during the '80s, even the same delivery system that was used to kill 241 U.S. servicemen in their Beirut barracks on Oct. 23, 1983 - the strike that brought U.S. policy in Lebanon to a halt and altered the course of Middle East politics. Combine this with the Aug. 7 car bombing of the Jordanian embassy, which killed 17, and it is starting to look as if we are up against a lot more than the "remnants" of Saddam Hussein's regime. One bomb is an outrage. Two bombs are a campaign. No matter how tough things get, we cannot leave Iraq until it is mended.
