Al-Qaida linked group claims responsibility for bombing

An insurgent group that includes al-Qaida in Iraq claimed responsibility for a suicide car bomb that killed nine U.S. soldiers northeast of Baghdad, according to a Web statement Tuesday.

The Islamic State of Iraq, an umbrella group of Sunni militants that includes al-Qaida in Iraq, said in an online posting that it was behind Monday's attack on a U.S. patrol base in Diyala province.

The attack killed nine American soldiers and wounded 20, the military said.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
