Today's round-up of (depressingly bad) Iraq news

Iyad Allawi, the Iraqi PM to be, masterminded terrorist bombings (with civilian targets) aimed at the Hussein regime during the early '90s - bombings that were instigated and paid for by the CIA. So says the N.Y. Times. Full Story

Also in the Times: The two main Kurdish political parties, which control armed forces of 75,000 fighters combined, have withdrawn their senior leadership from Baghdad, and are on the verge of a defacto succession from the new Iraqi state, which will be created June 30. Full Story

On the wire, the AP is reporting that a major pipeline has been blown up by insurgents, forcing the shutdown of a power plant, and resulting in a 10% decrease in available electricity for the entire country. Full Story, plus summary of today's other developments. (Courtesy Yahoo)

It's not really "news," (because everyone already knew it would happen) but the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a resolution on Iraqi sovereignty.
