    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents attacked several U.S. bases and government offices with mortars and rockets Thursday before dispersing in the capital of western Iraq's Anbar province, residents said.

    The attacks occurred as local tribal leaders and U.S. military officials were to hold their second meeting in a week at the governor's office in the city center.

    Residents said that within minutes, scores of masked gunmen, believed to be members of Jordan-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's al-Qaida in Iraq group, ran into the city's streets but dispersed after launching attacks with mortars and Russian-made Katyusha rockets.

    They're not insurgents. They are terrorist.

    Oh, you didn't get the memo: insurgents are now Saddamists and/or rejectionists - the administration feels that insurectionist, fighters against an occupation, is too sympathetic a term.

    Terrorists are still the outside forces taking advantage of the destabilization of Iraq.

    You're right, Joseph. I didn't read the OP very thoroughly. My bad.
