That was the verdict of Michael Yon on Hugh Hewitt's radio show tonight. He was talking about the linked post:
Al Qaeda in Iraq is defeated, according to Sheik Omar Jabouri, spokesman for the Iraqi Islamic Party and a member of the widespread and influential Jabouri Tribe. Speaking through an interpreter at a 31 October meeting at the Iraqi Islamic Party headquarters in downtown Baghdad, Sheik Omar said that al Qaeda had been defeated mentally, and therefore is defeated physically, referring to how clear it has become that the terrorist groups tactics have backfired. Operatives who could once disappear back into the crowd after committing an increasingly atrocious attack no longer find safe haven among the Iraqis who live in the southern part of Baghdad. They are being hunted down and killed. Or, if they are lucky, captured by Americans.
Yon described the progress he is currently seeing in Iraq as "unbelievable." Let's hope it continues.
Best news I’ve heard today.
Great news...and well deserved. On both sides of the equation.
Support Michael Yon at his blog.....he’s a FREELANCER and needs money to continue.
NO! NO! NO! NO!
The Surge is Working!!!
We need to get the word out. The WH has to speak out more forcefully. This war is too important to be lost to the media deceivers.
Prayers for continued success!!
“Al Qaeda Is Being Slaughtered”...
Wonderful, cannot kill enough of those roaches.
We’ll only know that Al Qaeda has been defeated when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid show up wearing black arm bands.
The Democrats are saddended.
Iraq was one of Al Qaeda’s big hopes. Looks like Iraq is now lost to them and they must move on to other territory.
The Taliban/Al Qaeda guys are getting kicked in Afghanistan so there is no safe haven there anymore.
The Tribal areas in Pakistan are their last bastion. The news there is not the greatest of late.
But defeating terrorist organizations requires that safe havens be taken away. If the Tribal areas in Pakistan is their last stand, then I say we are closer to winning the war on terror than ever.
More from Michael Yon on this.
“Sheik Omar, who has gained the respect of American combat leaders for his intelligence and organizational skills, said the tough line against al Qaeda is also enforced at the tribal level.
According to Sheik Omar, the Jabouri tribe, too, is actively committed to destroying al Qaeda. So much so, that Jabouri tribal leaders have decided they would kill their own sons if any aided al Qaeda.
To underscore the point, he went on to say that about 70 Jabouri sons had been killed by the Jabouri tribe so far.
In addition to brigade commander Colonel Ricky Gibbs, four of his battalion commanders were also present: Lieutenant Colonels James Crider, Patrick Frank, Stephen Michael and Myron Reineke. Sheik Omar expressed deep gratitude for their assistance.
Omars influence extends beyond tribal and party levels, to include important channels within the Iraqi government and the US military in Baghdad, as evidenced by the agenda of the hours-long meeting.
But for the talk about al Qaeda, the focus was mostly on other topics, such as returning displaced persons to their homes, efficiently delivering basic services and jumpstarting the economy.
In fact, more and more meetings in Iraq are turning to day-to-day business, and less time is required on military and security topics like targeting and addressing intelligence-type matters, which until recently monopolized most meetings across Iraq.”
Praise the Lord for this man. God bless our troops.
I thought you would like this.
GOD BLESS THE LIBERATED IRAQIS
GOD BLESS THOSE WHO LIBERATED THEM AND WHO ARE KEEPING IT THAT WAY
GOD BLESS LIBERTY AND FREEDOM FOR ALL!!!!
What is being ballyhooed as the War On Terror” is the public face of the enemy in the war in which we are actually engaged.
We have to take care of Iran, now, regardless of AQ and ultimately we have to deal with Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and the Wahabbis.
The Surge has Worked and Victory is Ours
Pray for W and Our Victory Troops
