So... which country was he coming from? Turkey? Syria? Jordan? Kuwait? OR IRAN ? Which one(s) would be most likely to be aiding al Qaeda? Would Osama likely still be there?
In what may be a major breakthrough, the Pentagon said that US forces had captured Abdul Hadi al-Iraqi, an Iraqi-born al-Qa'ida commander high on the most-wanted list of terrorists. He has been transferred to the top security prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.A Pentagon spokesman said Al-Iraqi was transferred to Defence Department custody this week from the Central Intelligence Agency, but he refused to say where, when and how he was seized. ... The Pentagon spokesman said the captured terrorist was trying to return to his native country to manage al-Qa'ida's affairs there and possibly co-ordinate operations outside Iraq against Western targets.
WHICHEVER NATION GAVE SAFE-HAVEN TO AL IRAQI SHOULD BE PUNISHED - KINETICALLY IF NECESSARY.
UPDATE: ACCORDING TO THE LONDON TIMES AL-IRAQI WAS COMING INTO IRAQI FROM IRAN:
The al-Qaeda leader who is thought to have devised the plan for the July 7 suicide bombings in London and an array of terrorist plots against Britain has been captured by the Americans.AS POWER LINE POINTS OUT, THE LEFTISTS/DEMS/"DOVE" HAVE LONG CONTENDED THAT THESE THREE ENTITIES - IRAQ, IRAN AND AL QAEDA HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER AND DON'T COOPERATE.
Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi, a former major in Saddam Hussein’s army, was apprehended as he tried to enter Iraq from Iran
THIS STORY PROVES THAT THIS LEFTIST-LINE IS TOTAL BULLSHIT; THEY DO COOPERATE - ALL THE TIME.
IT'S TIME WE TREATED IRAN APPROPRIATELY.
