Iraqi Spokesman Says Leader of Major Al-Qaeda-Linked Group Captured Near Baghdad

The leader of the Al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, has been captured in a raid west of Baghdad, an Iraqi military spokesman said Friday.

U.S. officials had no confirmation of the statement by Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, spokesman of the Baghdad security operation.

Al-Moussawi said al-Baghdadi was captured Friday in a raid in Abu Ghraib on the western outskirts of Baghdad.

“One of the terrorists who was arrested with him confessed that the one in our hands is al-Baghdadi,” al-Moussawi said.

Is this also a “failure”?

Al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi, has been identified in statements posted on Islamic extremist Web sites as the head of the Islamic State, which was proclaimed last year after the death of the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraqi, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

This is a major coup for the Iraqis and our troops. Will they be given kudos by the leftists? Odds are, no. And that’s just down right pathetic.

“As for you the slaves of the cross (U.S.-led coalition forces), the grandsons of Ibn al-Alqami (Shiites), and every infidel of the Sunnis, we can’t wait to sever your necks with our swords,” the message read.

Git’mo is much too humane for that pig.

I’m curious.  Why were there so many “alerts” when the blond bimbo died, yet I didn’t see anything about this on the news this evening?
