Media Blog reader W.A. Davis points out the following story on CNN.com:
Please quickly click over to CNN.com and read the story about “Suspected leaders of al Qaeda in Iraq captured.” Then read on a bit to see that al-Qaeda is an “insurgent group”, not “terrorists,” a “terror group,”Al-Qaeda in Iraq is an Islamic terrorist organization — part of a global jihad against the West and Israel.

“terrorist group” or “terrorist organization.”
UPDATE: Al-Qaeda in Iraq now denies it orchestrated the attack that killed 18 kids, three U.S. soldiers and wounded 70 yesterday. And you can trust them, because they’re al-Qaeda. They’re just an “insurgent group”. They would never kill any kids.
