Buried in a story of gloom and doom....
....is good news.
With crucial national elections only two days away, Iraqi officials announced the arrests of three more purported lieutenants of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, including the Jordanian terror mastermind's military adviser and chief of operations in Baghdad.The beat goes on. One by one the network is collapsing and its leaders are sitting in prison.
Deputy Prime Minister Barham Saleh told reporters that U.S. and Iraqi authorities were closing in on al-Zarqawi, head of al-Qaida's affiliate in Iraq who is believed responsible for many of the car-bombings, kidnappings and decapitations of foreigners in Iraq.
I suspect, after the elections are over, the new Iraqi government will not deal kindly with these murderers and thugs.
