Iraq - al Qaeda Ledership Being Decimated

Winds of Change has a round up of the pounding the al Qaeda ledership is taking.

Khalid Suleiman Darwish has been killed in Qaim. Darwish was Zarqawi's number two in command.

Darwish is the second prince to be removed from the battlefield in the past month, after the capture of Abu Talha. It's important to note that Talha was captured after a tip off from locals.

Abdullah al-Rashood, a very senior member of al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia was also killed in Qaim this past week.

Hilal Hussein al-Badrani, a Saudi who commands Ansar al-Sunnah, has been captured outside of Mosul by Iraqi security forces.

Let's not forget that Zarqawi has reportedly been wounded and hopefully we'll get him soon.

al-Badrandi's capture might explain why Ansar al-Sunnah wants talks with the US.

The Sunday Times said that the insurgents at the first meeting included the Ansar al-Sunna Army, which claimed responsibility for suicide bombings in Iraq and a Christmas attack that killed 22 people in the dining hall of a US base at Mosul.
