Coalition Forces Kill Al Qaeda in Iraq leader
Friday, February 24, 2006
BAGHDAD, Iraq Al Qaeda in Iraq's leader in northern Baghdad was killed in a raid Friday, the U.S. military said.
The military identified Abu Asma, also known as Abu Anas and Akram Mahmud al-Mushhadani, as an explosives expert with close ties to important car bomb manufacturers in Baghdad.
He died in a northern Baghdad raid conducted by coalition forces with the help of Iraqi police, a military statement said..."
End excerpt. Story follows: Fox News
If that's true, civilization won't miss him much.
I thought our troops were lying low, wonder if it was even our military that killed them?
Did they say WHO it was?
It wasn't Zarquai some other guy probably one of his "top aids" LOL
Hope it's a top-tier and not one of the many senior-assist-vice-presidents.
they said it was a raid i believe
Abu Asma, also known as Abu Anas and Akram Mahmud al-Mushhadani
i think it was top tier, but it wasn't Zarquai
also known as dead meat .....
Scratch another Number Two...
You mean Akbar al-Mumarikadud's cousin?
another one bites the dust.
Wow, that is kind of scary. The whole country is on edge, and somehow the military found a place to raid? Or did some Iraqi forces we trained do the raid?
I just heard how there was this big order for our military to stay out of sight and to stand down right now and a raid seems contrary to supposed orders they were under at this time.
Well, this gets interesting.
Thanks for the info! :-)
Yes and YES INDEED! :-)
He (the target) was probably a mid level executive from DP World.
