WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A convoy carrying Gen. John Abizaid, the commander of all U.S. forces in the Middle East, was attacked Thursday during a visit to Iraqi defense forces in Fallujah, U.S. officials told CNN.

Attackers fired on the convoy with small arms and rocket-propelled grenades as it entered a military compound near Fallujah.

No one in his traveling party was injured in the gunbattle.

The attack follows a pair of bombings that killed more than 100 people in two days.

was this a moment of opportunity or do you think that maybe the Iraqi's intel is getting better and they're going to start targeting high ranking officials of the U.S. ?

I personally think it was an attack on a "convoy" that they saw moving, just happened to be our U.S. Forces Commander.
