The Culprits

It's instructive that the premature detonation took place in Sadiyah. My understanding (and I'd welcome any additional information) is that this is a Sunni neighborhood, formerly popular with Baathists. If the bombs were assembled here, it seems likely that these attacks were carried out by them. Combined with the murders of Awakening Council members on Friday (in an operation breathtaking in its audaciousness), it seems probable that we're in for an uptick in sectarian violence in the coming months as a new government is formed.
