Iraq - Zarqawi Aides Captured

Last week I posted about the arrest of some aides to terrorist Zarqawi. Seems those arrests have led to more arrests.

Ahh, the noose tightens.

IRAQI security forces had captured two suspected members of a militant group headed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaeda's leader in Iraq, the Iraqi Government said today.

Brothers Hutheyfa and Mohammed Abdul-Jabbar were picked up on February 12 in Baghdad, based on intelligence extracted from other suspected insurgents under interrogation.

"It's clear from information and evidence gathered from the raid that Hutheyfa is a member of al-Qaeda," the Government said.

Iraqi security forces have rounded up scores of suspected guerrillas in recent weeks.

Note the term "guerrillas" instead of terrorists.

The Iraqis made clear their feelings when they voted - time to go Zarqawi.
