Press release from Multi-National Force Iraq --

A Concerned Local Citizen leader was killed Jan. 26 in northern Baghdad when his car exploded from explosives planted inside the vehicle.

“This was a cowardly and desperate act executed by terrorists bent on derailing reconciliation efforts and progress in an area that has seen remarkable progress as a result of cooperation and resolve on the part of local Iraqi leaders and citizens,” said Col. Todd B. McCaffrey, commander 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.

"Concerned Local Citizens" are the militias that the US has created to provide a parallel security force outside that of the Iraqi government. But the key point is that this "cowardly and desperate" act involved getting a bomb inside this dude's car. Who's in those militias, George?
