    Iraqis Hand Over 'The Butcher,' High-Ranking Al Qaeda Member
    Friday, December 09, 2005

    BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraqi citizens turned over a high-ranking Al Qaeda member known as "the Butcher" to U.S. forces in Ramadi Friday a military statement said.

    Amir Khalaf Fanus was No. 3 on the 28th Infantry Division's High Value Individual list for Ramadi, wanted for murder and kidnapping in connection with his affiliation with Al Qaeda in Iraq.

    "He is the highest ranking Al Qaeda in Iraq member to be turned into Iraqi and U.S. officials by local citizens," Capt. Jeffrey S. Pool said in a statement released from Camp Blue Diamond in Ramadi. "His capture is another indication that the local citizens tire of the insurgents' presence within their community."

    According to Pool, Iraqi and U.S. Forces "have witnessed increasing signs of citizens fighting the terrorists within Ramadi as the Dec. 15 National Elections draw nearer."

    He said that another 1,200 Iraqi Security Force soldiers were recently stationed in Ramadi, while 1,100 Iraqi special police commandos and a mechanized Iraqi army company had moved into the city.

    I've heard about this all day from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, UPN, and on the radio. I'm glad that you imply that the FOXNEWS source quoted in the original post isn't MSM because it certainly isn't.

    What WAR are you talking about? The war for hearts and souls or the war for profits and personal enrichments?

    This is how many times we have caught the 3rd or even 2nd in control of the terrorists? Please don't titillate me.

    The Iraqi's have a long and difficult WAR to perpetrate and defend if one is to believe the American press releases. We cannot simply walk off and deny our participation or perpetration. What to do? Lie and pretend it's the truth.
