Our military has captured the leader of Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) :
Not quite as sweet as capturing the leader of AQI, but given that ISI is the umbrella group for Salafist jihadists in the country, it’s the next best thing. His name is Khalid al-Mashhadani, a.k.a. Omar al-Baghdadi, a.k.a. phantom caliph of the nascent Islamist paradise the Salafis are trying to form in Iraq.
I love starting the day with good news. So far I haven’t seen a news story stating how we captured him (were we tipped off etc).
