Over there:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed 12 people in the lobby of a busy Baghdad hotel on Monday, and the U.S. military said six tribal leaders opposed to al Qaeda were among the dead.

It was one of four separate bombings across Iraq in which 40 people were killed.

Police said a bomber wearing a vest packed with explosives blew himself up after walking into the lobby of the Mansour Hotel, where Sunni Arab tribal leaders from western Anbar province had gathered for a meeting.

And, yes, the language creep is here. All insurgents are now al Qaeda.

... CNN: "a suicide bomber was able to get through several layers of security..." Odds are, the bomber was a part of that security.
