Al-Qaeda Coordinated Blasts in Baghdad Kill at Least 110 with at least 4 car bombs used in attack, stolen cars from USA sent to Iraq for resale and car bombs says private investigator Bill Warner.

Fox News, BAGHDAD — A series of coordinated attacks struck Baghdad Tuesday, including three car bombs that blew up near government sites. At least 110 were killed and 197 wounded in the worst wave of violence in the capital in more than a month, authorities told Reuters.

A total of four attacks, which also included a homicide car bomb on a police patrol, showed the ability of insurgents to strike high-profile targets in the heart of Baghdad. It was another embarrassment to Iraqi forces in their expanding role as front-line security as U.S. forces plan their withdrawal.

The blasts came as Iraqi officials prepared to announced the date for next year's parliamentary elections — a move the security forces worry could bring an escalation in attacks seeking to discredit the pro-Western government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

The core of the attacks hit central Baghdad with three bomb-rigged cars exploding in the span of a few minutes. The targets were the latest assaults directed at Iraqi authorities: the Labor Ministry building, a court complex near the Iraqi-protected Green Zone and the new site of the Finance Ministry after its previous building was destroyed in major attacks in August.

An official for Iraq's Interior Ministry told The Assocaited Press at least 90 people were killed in those three car bombs and at least 115 injured. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give information to media, more from this source.........

 BBC News....Iraqi national security adviser Mowaffaq al-Rubaie blamed al-Qaeda militants for the attacks. He told the BBC their aim was to destabilise the country ahead of general elections due in Febuary. "Al-Qaeda has been active in Baghdad recently," Mr Rubaie said. "The aim is to show the government is unable to protect civilian and its own people and also to deter people from going to ballot boxes." more from this source........

CAN News...Wednesday, November 25, 2009, U.S. Based Stolen Car Rings Fund, Supply Terrorists Like Hezbo says Bill Warner, the boss of WBI Inc. Private Detective Agency in Sarasota, Fl., Terrorists have been using stolen car rings inside the United States to fund and supply their operations for years, recent investigations reveal. Stolen cars are obtained inside the United States, particularly in Tampa, Fl., and shipped to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where they are then sold for profit or even used for car bombs in places such as Iraq.

Bill Warner, the boss of WBI Inc. Private Detective Agency in Sarasota, Fl., explained that Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of supporting the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, was linked to various used car dealers. Warner himself came upon the ring by discovering a car dealer on the west coast of Florida using tags that did not belong to him, at which point he tracked the shipment of cars to Dubai.

Warner also explained that the majority of the car exporters were Iraqi refugees, including some who had taken part in activities to overthrow Saddam Hussein, which failed after the U.S. declined to support them. “Shiite used car dealers who were exporting vehicles, operated out of the Port of Tampa and the Port of Savannah, [and] vehicles were purchased at salvaged auto actions and/or from street hustlers of recent stolen vehicles,” Warner explained. more from this source..............
