Iraq - Another al Qaeda Leader Caught

Recently I posted about al Qaeda's leadership being decimated in Iraq. Now comes news they've caught another one.

Iraq says its forces have arrested one of the leaders of the Al-Qaeda network allegedly responsible for kidnapping Iraqis and foreigners.

A government statement says Sami Ammar Hamid Mahmud, also known as Abu Aqil was arrested two days ago in Baghdad.

The statement also referred to Abu Aqil's cell as managing and leading operations outside Iraq as well as being responsible for kidnapping Iraqis and foreign nationals for ransoms to fund terror acts

The fact that many of these guys are being arrested would indicate that either the Iraqis are getting good intelligence or they are being tipped off.
