A suicide bomber driving a minibus pulled alongside a convoy of elite Iraqi commandos in the capital Sunday and detonated his explosives, killing 10 people in a spray of burning metal, witnesses said.
Sunday's death count is near 50, in a number of bombings.
What needs to be noted is just how effective the intelligence the resistance is getting. They are getting very good at hitting high value moving targets. That doesn't happen by chance.
Monday isn't much better; Teachers and a Bus Driver killed in an attack on a school.
A group of nine men wearing Iraqi police uniforms stormed an elementary school south of Baghdad Monday, ordered all the male teachers and the school bus driver into a room and sprayed them with bullets, killing six, in a rare attack on a school in Iraq, officials said.
"These men were terrorists wearing police uniforms," said Capt. Muthana Ahmed, director of the provincial police force in the area about the attackers. "No prior warning was made."
Fantastic intelligence, police uniforms, the insurgents in Iraq are woven into all of the institutions that we are trying to build to crush them.
