US Ally Sheik Abu Risha Killed in Iraq

Last week, President Bush traveled not to Baghdad but to Anbar Province, one of the few bright spots for the US military in Iraq. One of the Sunni leaders who shook his hand was Abdul Sattar, head of a clan alliance called the Anbar Salvation Council. Today, Sheik Abdul Sattar was killed by either a roadside bomb or a bomb in his car. Phebe Marr, an advisor to the Iraq Study Group, is author of The Modern History of Iraq.
