    "Al Quaeda in Iraq" is a unique and separate group from Al Quaeda. It's like the IRA vs "the Real IRA" or Famous Ray's pizza vs Original Ray's and Famous Original Ray's. Different groups with similar names. But the MSM doesn't point that out, b/c they want you to think it's Al Quaeda doing things when it's really Al-Quaeda-in-Iraq.
