Iraq: 11 HIGH LEVEL ANSAR AL SUNNA TERRORISTS CAPTURED

In one week's time, Coalition Forces captured 11 suspected senior-level terrorists of Ansar al Sunna during a series of raids in north-central Iraq during mid-November.

During the raids, Coalition Forces captured the terrorist emirs of Iraq, Ramadi, Baqubah, Tikrit, al Qa’im, Bayji and Baghdad. They also captured two terrorist facilitators, a courier, an explosives expert and a financier.

The detention of these terrorists delivers a serious blow to the AAS network that is responsible for improvised explosive device attacks and suicide attacks and on Iraqi government, Coalition Forces and Iraqi civilians. The AAS network is also responsible for multiple kidnappings, small arms attacks and other crimes in the central and northern part of Iraq.

AAS is considered by some to be a leading terror organization in Iraq as al-Qaida’s leadership continues to crumble and it loses its ability to function due to Iraqi and Coalition Forces systematic dismantling efforts.

Although some AAS senior leadership allegedly hide in Iran, they continually plan attacks to disrupt Iraqi reconstruction efforts. This allows the AAS leadership to attempt to disrupt Iraqi reconstruction progress using their followers, while keeping the leadership out of harms way.

The Iraqi people deserve to live in country free from terror. Coalition and Iraqi Forces will continue to disrupt terrorist networks by killing and capturing terrorists, intercepting and destroying VBIEDs and suicide vests and continuously degrading terror cells operating within Iraq.

AubreyJ.org - I'm Back on Blogger

Yep, I'm back on BBlogger!!!
.
And No Sir... The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence.
.
I had to fire GoDaddy... Their Blog Program and Service on my Blog were very... very disappointing. Not to mention an unjustified Billing I couldn't live with.
.
I was charged for way more traffic than I ever use and got not much more than a "sorry" when I asked about it. Closed everything I had with GoDaddy down... but kept my Domain Names. Got to keep them with GoDaddy... at least for now.
.
Anyway... I'm back at this site and I will keep on doing what I do... Supporting my Party... supporting the troops and supporting my President and the fight on the War on Terror.
.
Thanks for putting up with me!
Your friend...

Bush, Maliki Put Off Meeting Until Thursday

The White House announced today that President Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will be putting off their meeting until tomorrow, (Thursday, November 30th.)

WRAL.com has this report. It goes in part as follows... Iraqi lawmakers and cabinet ministers loyal to anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr suspended their participation in the parliament and government in protest over al-Maliki's summit with Bush.

U.S.-Iraq Summit Put Off Until Thursday

Another Example of the MSM Trying To Make the News, Not Report It

Curt, over at Flopping Aces... has done some great... GREAT REPORTING on the facts of how a bogus Iraqi Police Officer has been supplying quotes to the AP.

Curt writes in part... So the AP prints a report in which “police” are quoted as saying the US fired on the civilians but the Iraqi police reported NO coalition involvement to the MoI.

Gang... This is a long read... but very much worth the time.

Thanks to Little Green Footballs and to Michelle Malkin for bringing Curt’s great reporting to our attention.
