8. Just heard on NPR
that a Sunni group was claiming responsibility..

In a way that makes sense. It's widely believed that Iran is supporting the Shiia and the Shiia militia (which makes the claims of Iranian weapons killing our troops ludicrous) in Iraq against the Sunni, so Sunni retaliation isn't that hard to believe.

The other possibility is that this is some kind of "false flag" operation by either the Iranian government as stated above or possibly by a US funded surrogate group....

who knows? :shrug:
