Inside Najaf 

Some details from the NY Times about what's going on in the Iraqi holy city.

"The American military appeared to be getting help from a shadowy new vigilante group in Najaf that might have been responsible for the deaths of seven armed supporters of the rebel cleric, Moktada al-Sadr, according to residents of Najaf. An American commander said that "there may be some validity" to reports of attacks by the vigilantes."

Are they little Iraqi angels-on-our-shoulders, or CIA trained Iraqis doing our dirty work? I have no idea which, but i hope they are Shiites who are pissed at the meglomaniac Sadr for what he's putting the people of Najaf through...More soon.
