This group has received zero coverage in the mass media, and
almost none in alternative media (eg antiwar.com, informationclearinghouse.info,
juancole.com). Only the The World War 4 Report (http://www.ww4report.com)
appears to cover it.
Seems a strange omission to me.
From the Wiki:
The IFC has organized self-defense Safety Forces that patrol
neighborhoods in Baghdad with a population of around 5,000.
They have reduced sectarian violence there to zero.
In September 2006, US troops raided the Baghdad office of the
IFC, for the crime of putting up posters and banners opposing
the US occupation of Iraq. Troops confiscated most of the office's
property and destroyed most of what they left behind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_Freedom_Congress
