Top Al Qaeda operative taken into US custody
10 minutes ago
The United States has taken into custody a top al-Qaeda operative who plotted to assassinate Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and other officials, a Pentagon spokesman said Friday.
Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi, who was taken to the US navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba about a week ago, was intercepted while trying to reach Iraq to take over Al-Qaeda operations and to plot attacks from there against western targets outside Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said.
He is "one of Al-Qaeda's highest ranking and senior operatives at the time of his detention.

Hope they wringed out as much as they could already.
Swift, hard and thorough interrogation followed by military trial and swift execution.
Somebody get Harry Reid some anti-depressants STAT.
Yes, I am sure Leahy would prefer that he be brought into the United States and set free on bond while awaiting his trial where he will be defended by a court-appointed attorney at taxpayer expense, exonerated and apologized to, then given his green card and allowed to bring his family over here.
If it were Bin Laden that had been captured we may as well have let him go as per Romney. He of course said it’s not worth the expense to capture him.
I agree.....then Leahy can’t complain about his rights being violated. Speaking of which, can someone explain, exactly, what rights this guys really has?
Good news....i guess we are intercepting lots of folks,
I wonder how many we are intercepting that we are not
Iraq and Pakistan are two places AQ would love dearly to mess up. Thanks, HR, for your cooperation.
He is a non-uniformed, non-state military terrorist. He has actually no rights whatsoever. We could put him against a wall and shoot. We don’t do this. But we should extract any useable information, give him a swift military trial and sentence him to death.
We are one signature away from ending this war - Barrack Hussein Obama
He is a despicable POS.
Yes, he should be put against the wall and shot. But first we need to extract some information from him. I understand George Tenet’s new book has good things to say about the efficacy of some of our interrogation methods.
Not the lady’s underware treatment again ?
Obama is also protective of civil rights for Muslims in the U.S., saying, "In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging," he laments. "I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
Obama sponsors Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.
Obama calls the Iraq war "a botched and ill-advised U.S. military incursion into a Muslim country."
Speaking about Malcolm X, Obama said: "Malcolms discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation."
Obama's pastor Jeremiah A. Wright told The New York Times in an interview, published March 6th: "When his (Obama's) enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli," with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to visit Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, "a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."
In March, Obama tells the Muscatine, Illinois Dhimmicratic party activists that he supports relaxing restrictions on aid to the Palestinian people. He said they have suffered the most as a result of stalled peace efforts with Israel. "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people."
Obama's picture is currently displayed on the page banner of Project Islamic H.O.P.E., a national organization that advocates for the human rights of oppressed People regardless of race, gender or religion. Project Islamic H.O.P.E. follows the teachings of the Holy Quran and the example of Prophet Muhammad. They support and follow the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, one of the worlds foremost Islamic leaders.
The Islamic rules
The Islamic website, Light of Life, defines apostasy as follows:
Apostasy can occur by an explicit declaration, such as, "I associate other gods alongside Allah" (usherek billah) ...
The same holds true when a Muslim enters a church, worships an idol, or learns and practices magic, for by magic one glorifies a name other than Allah and ascribes predestination, knowledge and control of fate to someone other than Allah.
All four imams (the founders of the four schools of Islamic law) -- may Allah have mercy upon them -- agree that the apostate whose fall from Islam is beyond doubt -- may Allah forbid it -- must be killed, and his blood must be spilled without reservation. The hypocrite and heretic (zindiq) who poses as a Muslim but has secretly remained an unbeliever must also be killed.
Now ask yourself this
Why has not a single Imam, Mullah or other Muslim, anywhere in the world, called for Obama to be treated as an apostate?
Kinda makes you wanna go hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
Did you know
Muslims practice al Taqiiyya and dissimulation. These are words used for a practice of Muslims blatantly lying to non-Muslims. Muslims consider the act of Al-taqiyya or lying to non-Muslims to be a good work.
He’d probably sign a huge legislative bill that would turn America over to whoever wants it.
When are they gonna get Amed Aduti?
The rest of your post is useful information, but this one is just silly -- a good conservative and/or libertarian could also support this measure due to the concept that the food in question is not being fraudulently advertised.
Zawahiri & UBLs freely breathing days just became less numbered.....
CNN reported that the guy was ‘captured’ a few years ago and that the Pentagon was just releasing the info. Did anyone else hear this?
This will become the MSM template for this story if true.
“...nothing to see.... move along, etc.” Leahy will probably start asking questions about ‘secret prisons’, ‘torture’, blah, blah blah!
Guys like this just need to “disappear.”
That way, the al queda wanna-be’s will ask themselves,”what happened to asadullah?” Buddy: “I don’t know, he just went for a motorcycle ride and...”
As happens with Kosher foods ?
Unless there's more to it than was quoted, the bill was to ensure that food marketed as "Halal" was actually "Halal". It doesn't force anyone to make "Halal" meats and other products, it just says that anyone who choses to market their products as such actually has to do what they're claiming.
Simple anti-fraud, as far as I'm concerned.
If this is the case, then that is fine with me.
Another evidence of value of us being and staying in Iraq... Iraq is a mousetrap / roach motel for al-Qaeda big and little rodents and cockroaches.
That would have made me SO SAD. He's SUCH a great FRIEND! /s
Amazing, isn't it.
BTW add add a few R's like Hagel and Paul to the list.
I’m not, this guy works both sides of the aisle.
Please do not disrespect his Muslim heritage. His proper name is "Obama Al Husseini".
Did you see the article a couple of days ago talking up KSM’s capture? The guy’s first words to his captors was wondering when he was going to be flown to New York and have his attorney!
Too bad these guys know more about us then the dimwits in Congress know about them.
That would have made me SO SAD. He's SUCH a great FRIEND! /s
Musharraf has been a strong ally in the fight against Al Qaeda. Against the Taliban, it's a little more complicated.
Anyway there is no way in hell I would ever mock the failed assassination attempt of an ally of ours in the fight against Al Qaeda.
let’s turn him over to Pakistan. they’ll be swift and just with an attempted assassin, but before that they’ll get 10 times as much intelligence out of him than we could, what with our hands tied and all. give him the Jack Bauer treatment. he’ll wish he’d been at Gitmo.
He was intercepted while trying to reach Iraq. Did he travel through Iran or by sea? If the former is the case did he travel alone and was he given assistance?
Bingo! We have a winner. Mooos-limbs try to get the government to help them with this, then they will rely of power of the federal government to help them with other things, like their ‘freedom of expression’ so they can install minarets, and broadcast their calls to prayer, etc.
This is the camel’s nose in the tent!
The calls to prayer are MUCH different than church bells ringing. In their calls, because they are actually speaking in Islamic, they could be saying anything.
This just irks me to no end! I bust my tail putting in 50 hour weeks and haven't taken a full vacation in 3 years and this johnny-jihad gets a free ocean cruise to a beautiful Caribbean Island with a nice balmy ocean breeze -- on my dime!
Put panties on his head.
You got this right! This guy is a Big capture with tremendous HUMINT value. He was trying to get back to Iraq to lead the last stand of Al Queda....watch out Harry Reid, the worm is turning and your allies are going down!
BTW, what is the deal with all the joke-sters around FR these days?
