Rolling Up al Qaeda In Iraq

Published by at 12:36 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq

Lots of stories out today on the capture of al Qaeda In Iraq (from top to bottom). Top of the list is the deputy Emir for “al Qaeda In Iraq” (Zarqawi’s old organization reborn under various names). The US and Iraqi forces are definitely closing in on the Emir himself, al-Baghdadi. This report covers the capture of 27 terrorists across Iraq over the weekend. This second report puts the number captured at 61. Someone needs to ask Pelosi and Murtha how were we supposed to do all this with our troops huddled in Okinawa, Japan?
