Fallujah Mayor Mahmoud Ibrahim al-Jirisi said the attack hit a site for civilians supporting the Fallujah Brigade, a militia of local residents that took responsibility for security in the city when the Marines left.

"There are no Arabs or foreigners with them," he told the pan-Arab television station Al-Jazeera.

Nothing against your news
heh, don't get it wrong.

But I wonder how military/newspapers(the source) can be sure it was local militia with links to Al-Quaida?
Ok, I could understand that they know it is militia but killing 14 people via an airstrike, knowing they were all linked to AQ, woah! - in times where we have reports that western intelligences have no real clue at all about everything in the arab world, that's quite the 8 world wonder

Or it just sounds better to have some AQ guys rather than some stupid militia

I believe these air strikes are a direct copy of what the Isreals used against the terrorist in Palestine. I don't no wether this is successful approach or not. Time will tell.
