"Rogue Operation"

Tribal warfare? In Iraq? Unpossible.

The U.S. military spoke out on Wednesday against a deadly Iraqi special forces raid on the governor's office in one of the country's most restive provinces, saying it was a 'rogue operation.'

The Iraqi unit stormed Diyala governor Raad Rasheed Mulla Jawad's office in the provincial capital, Baquba, before dawn on Tuesday, killed his secretary and clashed with the regular army before withdrawing.
