White House condemns Baghdad bombings

'The White House on Tuesday condemned the coordinated bombing attacks in Baghdad that killed more than 100 people.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Iraqi leaders who recently passed an elections law are moving the country in the right direction, and that ''there are clearly those who are threatened by that.''

The coordinated attacks struck Baghdad Tuesday, including two suicide car bombers and another vehicle that blew up near government sites. At least 118 were killed and hundreds wounded in the worst wave of violence in the capital in more than a month, authorities said.'

Iraqis eagerly await condemnation from our Arab brothers.

Meanwhile, the Angry Arab is angry about the alcohol ban and occupation, but I haven't heard him call Sistani a puppet in a few days, and I don't hear Arabs encouraging "resistance" in Iraq these days. That is considered progress in the Arab world.
