Leader of those rebelling in Iraq, Abu Masab al-Zarqawi, has apparently claimed responsibility for last week's attack on Iraqi's Prime Minister, Ayad Allawi. Allawi survived the attack, according to the report. The statement carries al-Zarqawi's signature.
The statement, dated July 8, noted that Ayad Allawi, managed to survive the attack, but warned that "the bag is full" -- meaning more missiles may be used against the prime minister.

"If one of the arrows lost its way, more are coming toward you and targeting your heart," said the statement, which calls Allawi "Iraq's traitor."

Five people were wounded July 7 in a mortar attack directed at Allawi's compound. He was not present when the mortars landed near his home and office.

This is just the latest of insurgent attacks in Iraq, and a clear signal that these people are steadfast and have little fear of retribution from U.S. attacks. The confidence present in the statement is unsettling, at best.
