General: Iraqi Insurgents Directed From Syria (washingtonpost.com)
: "A top Army general said yesterday that the Iraqi insurgency was being run in part by former senior Iraqi Baath Party officials operating in Syria who call themselves the 'New Regional Command.'
These men, from the former governing party of deposed president Saddam Hussein, are 'operating out of Syria with impunity and providing direction and financing for the insurgency,' said Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the U.S. commander in Iraq. 'That needs to stop,' Casey said at a Pentagon briefing."
