    US ambassador today admitted meeting with insurgence leaders in Iraq, in an attempt to bring them to buy into the government. Also today, those long despised ba'atists may be invited back into the government. So, let's see - Hamas, which killed not one US soldier, and was responsible for say, at most, 50-100 Israeli deaths** (at least half of whom were soldiers engaged in enforcing the occupation), is shunned. But sunni insurgency, which states its goal as driving the US out of Iraq (this being something many people understand as classic definition of "resistance"), and appears to be on the way to success, killed 1000's of US personnel, can be engaged - even directly, by the ambassador hismself? not only that, but weren't them sunnis the ones who invited al-qauida into iraq + started the civil war there, complete with suicide bombings, the perpetrators of which don't even get a footnote with their name in the news? ** assuming that responsibility for attacks shared with other groups
