Iraq Official: Top Zarqawi Aide Captured


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) – Interior Ministry forces captured a top aide to al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi during a raid in western Iraq, a security official said Monday.

The official, a member of the ministry’s counterinsurgency Wolf Brigade, identified the key al-Qaida figure as Abu al-Farouq, who was previously unknown. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Yes, another number 2, in a long line of number 2’s, but it’s progress.

Speaking of progress, maybe the freedom and independance tune is finally reaching the ears of the Sunnis…

Sunnis Said Ready to End Boycott of Talks


BAGHDAD, Iraq — Sunni Arabs are willing to end a boycott of talks to form a unity government if Shiites meet certain conditions, a top Sunni said on Monday amid reports that a kidnapped U.S. reporter is alive and that a top Al Qaeda terror leader was captured.

Four people were killed in scattered attacks.

Interior Ministry forces captured a top aide to Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi during a raid in western Iraq, state television reported Monday.

It’s all good news, but as always it must be tempered… Iraq is still unstable, and will be for a while, people don’t learn to walk overnight.
