Top Iraqi Al Qaida Leader Arrested

Quote:
The leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Ayyub al-Masri, was arrested in the northern city of Mosul, the Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman said Thursday.
He trained in Afghanistan, is a car bomb expert, and took over after the former leader was killed in a US Air Strike in 1996. I hope this hastens the end of that loathsome war.

Here's the whole story:

From what I hear, he's probably staying with a friend in Pakistan.

I doubt this has any effect on the war. Iraq never was that much about Al-Qaida; they weren't in Iraq before the war, and they weren't supported by Sadaam. They only came in after the US let the situation go to pieces after the "victory."

You're right, Tim. And bin Laden is an Arab. But Bush has been pushing the idea that the two are connected.

I think the Bush administration's credibility ran out several years ago already.

I probably shouldn't get started on that. I will only say that I love my country, but have no respect for Mr. Bush. I would not stand if he walked into the same room. He trips over his own lies. I pray that God will bless America. We need it desperately.

Glad he's caught, won't make a jot of difference though as he'll have a fair number of deputies.
