More than 40 people have been killed in a string of bombings that have rocked Iraq. In Baghdad alone, over 20 bombs exploded in at least 12 separate incidents. Today’s bombings are raising questions the Iraqi government’s ability to deal with an ongoing insurgency. Sabah Al-Mukhtar from the Arab Lawyers Association says the bombings may actually be the Iraqi government’s way to get US troops to stay.
