In a statement issued today, November 4, 2005, the Military Wing of al-Qaeda in
Iraq renews the warning to the ?diplomatic corps? in Baghdad, noting that their previous announcement went unheeded. The group alleges that the ?small agents? are rushing to help the American government in Iraq by opening diplomatic relations with the Shi?ite government in Baghdad, and notes that the Moroccan government ?which cries today? was the first to come forward on this issue. According to the statement, as it relates to foreign diplomats, the mujahideen of al-Qaeda in Iraq ?will not spare any effort to follow them and get them wherever they are,? and states that they will not differentiate between a leader and the ?smaller employees.?
