Iraq Resistance Reports: 16-18 June

[Editors note: Based on information contained in the 16 June report, our analysis of the Mosque bombing that morning appears to be incorrect. The Resistance claims to have attacked Uncle Sam's Badr Brigade Death Squad headquarters, located inside the mosque. Our apologies.]
