BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- U.S.-led coalition troops arrested a man authorities identified as a suspected executioner for Saddam Hussein in a raid north of Baghdad, and four Iraqis were killed in suspicious blasts, a U.S. military spokesman said Friday.

The suspect and another man, described as a former general, were seized in an overnight raid in Ba'qubah, a town more than 30 miles (48 kilometers) northeast of Baghdad. The men's identities were not released.

We're smoking them out and rounding them up, one at a time, ping! (^;

This is great. Troops took out major bad guys and their weapons. CENTCOM's too busy conducting raids to inform us, I guess. Sigh. I miss their security reports. Counting on AP for details? Nah. Preliminary good news...o.k..

 Thanks, Tonkin!

Do you think our guys might have discovered the signal to detonate?

An Israeli robot drags a critically injured Palestinian suicide bomber whose bomb exploded prematurely, demanding, "What's the frequency, Kenneth?"

Got your jump ball right here viewer discretion advised.
