Rounding Up al Qaeda In Iraq

Published by at 4:16 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq

Everyday we see more reports of al Qaeda being captured and killed. Here is today’s big news:

Coalition forces detained 15 suspected terrorists, including a suspected al Qaeda in Iraq emir, in raids throughout Iraq today; Iraqi forces found a large weapons cache Feb. 24; and Iraqi and coalition forces announced the casualty toll from yesterday’s car-bomb attack in Habbaniyah, military officials reported.

During an operation in Baghdad, coalition forces captured a suspected al Qaeda in Iraq emir and one of his associates.

Three suspected foreign terrorist facilitators were captured in operations northeast of Samarra, and eight more were captured in a foreign fighter safe house west of Mahmudiyah.

In downtown Ramadi, coalition forces captured two suspects in a foreign fighter safe house. Intelligence reports indicated members of the cell were planning suicide operations against coalition or Iraqi forces.

Note to liberals: we cannot round up these people if we leave the county.

    No, we can let the Iraqis themselves round them up. It is their country and Bush’s illegal war brought them there.

    LASS why do you keep saying such stupid things? The war is an extension of a UN resolution 1991. Bush did not lie, the CIA got the intel. wrong. Powell said he spent a week with the CIA before his UN presentation and he got stuff wrong. Did he lie or was the Intel. wrong. We are not loosing, we are having a difficult time. War is tough. Ask the police what it is like in LA fighting gangs. Your rantings are uninformed and as usual lies.

    Bush’s war is perfectly LEGAL!!

    Bush’s war is our own war.

    Bush’s war is America’s war.

    Al Qaeda terrorists were already in Iraq BEFORE we invaded Iraq.

    Kudos to Iraq police, Iraq military, and our own military for rounding up these insurgents.

    Keep up the good work, U. S. troops!

    Rounding up al-Qaeda? How about Funding al-Qaeda??

    Lid blown off Bush funding of al-Qaeda related Terror Groups

    Seymour Hersch reports, and Reagan Assistant Secretary of Defense Lawrence J. Korb confirms, that the Bush administration, acting at the behest of Bush’s Saudi masters (the same ones who spirited numerous bin Laden relatives out of the country post-9/11), has been funding Sunni terror groups aligned with al-Qaeda terrorists in an effort to counteract Iranian influence in the Middle East.

    We’ve now come full circle: Bush is funding the same folks who blew up the Twin Towers. If anyone else did this – it would make them an enemy noncombatant under the Military Commission Act.

    Let’s hear it for George and Dick.

    Seymour Hersch is as left wing as he can be.

    Just about every article he’s written about Iraq and Iran have been disproven.

    Prove it, big mouth. Name one article that’s been discredited. Including My Lai.

    And, I suppose Reagan’s assistant Secretary of Defense, Lawrence Korb, is a leftist, too?

    Lawrence J. Korb, born July 9, 1939, in New York City, is the Director of National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York and a Senior Fellow of the Center for American Progress.

    In 1981, Korb was Director of Defense Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute and had served as an adjunct scholar for Federal budget analysis at the Institute since 1972. He was an adviser to the Reagan-Bush committee in 1980 and served as a member of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency transition team. In 1981, Korb was appointed as Assistant Secretary of Defense (Manpower, Reserve Affairs, Installations and Logistics) by Ronald Reagan and continued in that capacity until 1985. In that position, he administered about seventy percent of the defense budget. His responsibilities included: recruiting and training the five million active duty reserve and civilian employees of the Department of Defense; maintaining the U.S. worldwide military base structure; and establishing supply, maintenance, and transportation policies for the land, sea, and air forces of the United States. For his service in that position, he was awarded the Department of Defense’s medal for Distinguished Public Service . In the past he has served as a Consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense and to the Office of Education. He was a member of the Defense Advisory Committee for President-Elect Reagan (1980), and a member of the Defense Issues Group for President-Elect George Herbert Walker Bush (1988).

    He was Senior Fellow (1988-1998) at the Brookings Institution, held a position at Georgetown University (National Security Studies), was Dean of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, and was Professor of Management at the U.S. Naval War College (1975-1980), Associate Professor of Government at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (1971-1975), and Assistant Professor of Political Science, the University of Dayton (1969-1971). Korb has served as Chairman of the Board of the Committee for National Security and as a Board Member of the Washington Center, the Procurement Round Table, and the National Military Family Association. He is also a member of the International Institute of Strategic Studies and the National Academy of Public Administration.

    Korb was also Vice President of Corporate Operations at the Raytheon Company.

    A real leftist.

    My Lai has nothing to do with Iraq and Iran.

    There are those that used to work for Reagan that have written some strange things.

    And then there are some that claim themselves as conservatives, such as Joe Wilson and Larry Johnson.

    I notie you totally fail to identify a single story of Hersch’s that has been proven. Change the issue much?
