Iraqi Militias Fighting Al-Qaeda

Sometimes you get better information when the MSM doesn't realize they aren't warping the news.
The Al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Ayyub al-Masri, has been killed in an internal fight between insurgents, the interior ministry said.

Masri, an Egyptian who is also known as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, assumed the leadership of al Qaeda in Iraq after Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in June.

I'm thinking they have this wrong and that in fact this is fighting between Iraqi groups (militias) and the insurgents. To me it does appear to be more proof that Iraq is moving more toward the ability to become stable. When the Iraqi's start throwing out the foreign insurgents, then they are looking out for their own national interests.

A couple reports have stated that they haven't found Masri's body, which makes these reports sound a bit odd.
