Sounds like a quagmire to me,
US forces said they had killed the top Al Qaida leader in Salahuddin province, Haitham Al Badri, whom they blamed for a pivotal 2006 attack on a Shi’ite shrine in the city of Samarra that was a turning point in the country’s sectarian conflict.
They also said a week-long Iraqi police crackdown on Al Qaida in Samarra had netted 80 suspects.
Among the other Al Qaida figures reported captured over the past few days were the group’s local leaders for the Salahuddin cities of Samarra and Tikrit, home town of ousted leader Saddam Hussein. The US military said last week it had killed the Al Qaida leader in Mosul in the province further north.
I’m still waiting for some liberal to explain to me why they’re using Al Qaida and Iraq in the same story!
