A Raid Could Increase Tensions
Over Fate of Baath Party Members
November 30, 2007

An early morning raid at the office of Adnan al-Dulaimi, head of the main Sunni bloc, the Iraqi Accordance Front, could increase already tense relations between political parties. And as Sarmad describes below, there are deep-seated conflicts that took hold during the so-called de-Baathification that roiled Iraq’s institutions shortly after Saddam Hussein’s regime fell.

More than 40 suspects, including eight of Mr. Dulaimi’s guards, were detained by U.S. and Iraqi forces after they found two car bombs near his office, the U.S. military said in a statement on Friday. As a member of parliament, Mr. Dulaimi has immunity but it’s unclear whether he will be protected if there is evidence linking him to the bombs.
