"Zarqawi Senior Leader" and others arrested in Fallujah

U.S. Military Arrests "Zarqawi Senior Leader" in Fallujah
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - The U.S. military has arrested a "senior leader" in the network run by Jordanian terror mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, along with five others during overnight raids in the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah, officials said Saturday.

American forces have stepped up operations in Fallujah in a bid to root out al-Zarqawi's terror group, Tawhid and Jihad, which is believed to operate from there. The group has been blamed in numerous suicide bombings and beheadings of foreign hostages, including recent twin blasts inside Baghdad's Green Zone, which houses the U.S and Iraqi leadership.

The 1:30 a.m. raid in southern Fallujah targeted a site being used as a safe haven by al-Zarqawi's inner circle, according to a military statement.

Intelligence sources said the man captured was previously thought to be a relatively minor member of the terror network. But because so many of al-Zarqawi's associates have been captured or killed, he moved up to take a more important role.


Mods; this is not an election thread, it's a US military action in Iraq thread.

Otters; this is not the Official Zarqawi October Surprise Conspiracy Theory thread. Please see the Election forum for that thread.

Thank you.

Might as well, X. Apparently, good news is teh suck around here.

Maybe I should post how the insurgency is is becoming invincible, the mullahs are a lock for the elections, and beheadings are an hourly occurence. At least that'd get some post traffic.

Okay, so I'm just jealous of gettingbranded... sue me.

Feh.

I'm curious about how many innocent people left or still remain in Falluja.
