Senior police officers plotted to bomb interior ministry: Iraq
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticle.asp?xfile=da...

Iraqi security forces have foiled a plot by senior police officers linked to Al Qaeda to bomb the interior ministry, Interior Minister Bayan Solagh told a news conference Thursday.

We arrested over the past few days a secret military network comprising eight senior police officers and other policemen from the 2nd Brigade who were linked to the so-called Zarqawi group of Al Qaeda in Iraq, the minister said.

The 2nd Brigade is responsible for the police car pool.

The network intended to assassinate top officers and completely destroy the interior ministry, he said, refusing to give further details.

3. Not surprised. Seymour Hersh said the insurgents had the gov't "wired"

The Iraqi resistance has the government wired. They have people in various key areas of the government. Hersh made a point of emphasizing that.
