Woman Pulled Gun on Iraqi Defense Minister

Missed this one from Saturday’s news, haven’t seen anyone else with it:

A woman pulled a pistol on Iraq’s defense minister in his office but then broke down in tears in a failed assassination plot hatched by an Iraqi group in Syria, the minister said in comments published on Saturday. (emphasis mine)

Shaalan said the plan had been hatched by a Syria-based Iraqi group led by Mohamed Younes al-Ahmed, an Iraqi Baath party official. Sabaawi Ibrahim, a half brother of Saddam Hussein (newsweb sites), was also involved in the plot, he said.

Shaalan said the woman had revealed a wider plot involving a group of 50 women chosen "to carry out terrorist operations and assassinations in Iraq." The women were the wives or relatives of people jailed for or killed in clashes with Iraqi security forces and U.S.-led forces. Shaalan said they had undergone training in Syria "under the supervision of Iraqi terrorist elements living there." Iranian religious men had also supervised the training, he said.

Me thinks that this will spell alot of trouble for Syria in the near future. They should take a page from Lybia’s playbook, and realize that playing ball with the US is a wise choice.
