So Much for the "Civil War"

As this AP story points out, Iraqi insurgent groups have begun fighting against Al Qaeda in Iraq. So much for the left-wing trope of "civil war" that the Democrats have been trying to use to undermine American support for the war.

As the story notes:

At least two major insurgent groups are battling al-Qaida in provinces outside Baghdad, American military commanders said Friday, an indication of a deepening rift between Sunni guerrilla groups in Iraq.

Too bad the AP headline writers chose to go with the misleading title "Iraqi insurgents now fighting each other."
