From on the ground in Najaf, Eye Raki reports Mookie has returned to home in Najaf. Also, he has lost a lot of weight. Perhaps the Britney Spears diet?:
"I was introduced by a mutual friend to an officer in the Ministry of Interior who confirmed the reports. I wanted to go to look out for any unusual activity around his house but the street leading to his home was blocked off by IP's who wouldn't give us a straight answer as to why we are not allowed through...Could this be a turn around in Iranian foreign policy and possibly give them a card to play when talks with the Americans continue in Baghdad? Did Moqtada Al-Sadr really leave Iran because he missed Iraq or was he given the boot by Tehran? God damn I wish I had the answers...There are also reports that Moqtada is ill, it was clear to everyone who saw him on the Al-Jazeera interview that he has lost a considerable amount of weight and that has got everyone talking about his health. Depending on who you ask he is either having mental problems (and is taking medication; the reason for his sudden loss of weight) or he was poisoned by someone close to him. In any case...aww bless."
Earlier, he described the arrival of Mahdi Army dead for burial at the Imam Ali Shrine:
"After more praising of Moqtada and cursing of Malaki, an old man, probably around 60 years of age, after hearing the chant and Malaki is the enemy of Allah shouted no
you are the enemies of Allah. He was quickly taken away by the police for his own protection."
Gastro-Bypass or AIDS?
He had to come over the Iran/Iraq border. Why did they leave him back in?
Is CMAR II an FR member?
I like reading IBC
Time for Phoenix to fly.
Wonder if it’s really true .... any other news anywhere else?
Nope, not yet.
I haven't heard it anywhere. Interesting development, if true.
This is the second time today I’ve seen news of Mookies return.
Both pieces claimed he was in Najaf so he must be in Baghbad.
That would be very interesting.
He tends to stay away from Baghdad. He's kind of scared of it. ;-)
I’m really glad to see you posting after rocket season.
There are quite a few odd events been happening lately in the mid east and Iran, Iraq regions. leading up to Israel’s 60th.
I’m getting a bit nervous about things.
Keep a look out - stay low and keep moving.
I left Baghdad and got to Kuwait a couple of days ago after playing "Dodge-Rocket" in the Green Zone for a few days on the way out.
I've just finished a year on my current mission and am headed home in a couple of days for an extended break before I come back.
This has been planned long before Mookie's thugs started their crap. I guess it's good timing. ;-)
Thanks for looking out for me. Kuwait is blissfully peaceful. My heart is with all my "family" up in Iraq.

Perhaps his stunning lack of dental hygiene caught up with him in the form of abscesses and blood poisoning.
