"The Iraqi army forces arrested three terrorists who belong to al Qaeda, one of them is a senior aide of Zarqawi in Baghdad," Mosawi said. "He was one of the most wanted ones," he told Reuters, adding that Ani was suspected of being behind many attacks in the Iraqi capital.... Mosawi said the army had received intelligence information that Ani and the two other suspects were in a house in Baghdad's northern Adhamiya district, a predominantly Sunni area. "We prepared a plan and raided the house and arrested them without resistance," he said.Mike Pechar (hat tip) notes that this is only one in a string of recent al Qaeda captures.

However, the Lying Liberal Media keeps right on telling their Lies. When will the rest of the American people catch on and quit listing to the Lying Liberals?
It is nice knowing they are signing their own death penalty. (Drive By Media).
