From this news article:
Iraqi and U.S. authorities in Baghdad blamed the coordinated quadruple blasts on foreign fighters intent on targeting those they accuse of collaborating with U.S. forces. One captive would-be bomber was said to carry a Syrian passport.
But in Washington, Pentagon officials said they believed loyalists of ousted President Saddam Hussein were responsible. President Bush said insurgents had become more “desperate” because of what he said was progress in Iraq.
The folks on the ground in Iraq think it is foreign fighters, the gentlemen in Washington say it is Saddam’s followers. OK.
