LAT: Al Qaeda's new enemy -- Iraqis. A somewhat surprising source for this. Al Qaeda has gone too far, and has alienated many of those who would be expected to be its most loyal supporters, the Sunni Arab tribes. A year ago, Anbar province was declared lost. Today, violence is plummeting, and other provinces are following suit. The Sunni tribes in the lead, backed by Iraqi Army and U.S. troops is working to cleanse these provinces of these mostly foreign born terrorists.
