Jordan hotel suicide bombers all Iraqi according to Al Qaeda

Counterterrorism Blog has more.

So why use Iraqi's in an attack on Jordan?

My guesses: (1) resource limitation - perhaps Zarqawi only has access to experienced and willing Iraqi terrorists; or more likely (2) replicating the strategy of using Saudi Arabians for the 9/11 attacks: hoping the media and public will seize on the nationality of the suicide bombers rather than their membership of Al Qaeda.
