The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad Strongly Condemns the December 22, 2011 Attacks in Baghda

The United States Embassy in Baghdad strongly condemns today’s terrorist attacks that targeted innocent men, women, and children.  We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families and communities of these victims. 
It is especially important during this critical period that Iraq’s political leaders work to resolve differences peacefully, through dialogue, and in accordance with Iraq’s constitution and laws.  Senseless acts of violence tear at the fabric of Iraqi unity and do not in any way help the people of Iraq or any of its communities.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and all the people of Iraq.
