Another Top Zarqawi Aide Captured

Mohamed Najam Ibrahim, a top leader in Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's al Qada in Iraq network has been captured in the city of Baqouba. According to the AP, Ibrahim was personally involved, along with his unnamed brother, in beheadings. Iraqi officias say he is being interrogated by authorities for information they hoped would lead to other arrests.

Who the Ibrahim brothers' beheaded victims were was not reported by Iraqi officials.

In the past several weeks a number of top Zarqawi aides have been captured or killed. With each new arrest information is gathered and more arrests are made. Are we getting closer to capturing Zarqawi? I certainly hope so.

UPDATE: It looks like we nabbed two Zarqawi aides in the same day.

Let me quote Ice Cube for a moment, "Today was a good day."

1 They should turn this guy loose in one of the very neighborhoods where he'd been instrumental in killing fellow Iraqis--after informing the locals of their special "guest," of course.

2 They also arrested a Saudi General who taught them how to do the beheadings.

3 Sheesh, how can they keep getting Zarqawi's cohorts, yet not any closer to getting the man himself? Aren't any of these aides being interrogated?????

4 What? Interrogate them. Then we would have to listen to the Abu Garib prison cry babies again. Simple minded freaks like Jim would have a field day if we put panties on their heads.
