Big Terrorist Caught In Iraq

More very big and positive news from Iraq:

Big Fish Caught

Muhammad Khalaf Shakar was captured on Tuesday. Who was Shakar:

"Talha has been one of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's most trusted operations agents in Iraq," Alston said. "This is a major defeat for the al Qaeda organization in Iraq."

I particularly like this quote from Alston:

"Numerous reports indicated he wore a suicide vest 24 hours a day and stated that he would never surrender. Instead, Talha gave up without a fight," Alston said.

Huh, guess it was too hot to keep wearing that vest or more likely even within the inner circle the commitment for the cause is wearing thin given all the defeats and bad momentum going against the terrorist cause.................
