Tables turning on terrorists in Iraq

From Fox News

WASHINGTON — American and Iraqi joint patrols, along with U.S. Special Operations (search) teams, captured two men with explosives in Baghdad on Monday who identified themselves as Iranian (search) intelligence officers, FOX News has confirmed.

Senior officials said it was previously believed that Iran had officers inside Iraq stirring up violence, but this is the first time that self-proclaimed Iranian intelligence agents have been captured within the country.

The Defense officials also confirmed to FOX News that in recent days there has been significant success in tracking down "known bad guys" based on information from local citizens. While those captured aren't from the list of former regime members or from terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's (search) network, they are "active" bombers and organizers of recent violence.


Seems the tables may be starting to turn on the terrorists.

Here we have local citizens of Iraq turning in the bad buys and now they are threating to kill Zarqawi if he doesn't leave.

Zarqawi told 'leave Iraq or die'.

In addition, Al-Sadr not planning more violence: spokesman

"We are committed to the truce but peaceful resistance will remain until the last moment that foreign troops are present on Iraqi land," Sheikh Mahmoud Sudani told a news conference.

Meanwhile in the terrorist stronghold of Falluja we get this report:

Iraqi tipoff led to Falluja raid.

Allawi said in a statement that his government and U.S.-led multinational forces had consulted before the bombing.

"Iraqi security forces provided clear and compelling intelligence to conduct a precision strike this evening on a known Zarqawi safe house in southeastern Falluja," he added.


How much longer before Zarqawi is captured or killed?

I wonder if the Iraqi's will trade the Iranians captured for the British boats the Iranians stole?

With the tables turned on the terrorists and with all the good news in Iraq now things are looking better every day.
