Iraqi resistance unleashes major attack on outpost near Baghdad.

It's odd that we haven't heard more about it, but one bit of news from Iraq struck me recently:

Insurgent forces executed a coordinated attack on a coalition force combat outpost north of the Iraqi capital, killing two Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers and wounding 17 others Feb. 19.

Insurgents initiated the attack on the outpost with a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device detonation.

The attack site has been secured and wounded Soldiers have been evacuated.

It sounds like a very significant, coordinated assault that caused a fairly large percentage of casualties. I have to wonder whether the insurgents did anything particularly new in this assault, or whether they just got lucky. Normally, organized group attacks have been very unkind to the insurgency, but perhaps they're getting better at them?!
