Senior Al Qaeda Leader Captured Entering Iraq, Imprisoned In Gitmo

Wait -- if he was in Iraq, obviously he can't be Al Qaeda. Because Democrats want to fight Al Qaeda, but don't want to fight in Iraq -- so he must not have been Al Qaeda. Just Al Kinda.

The Pentagon said Friday it has custody of one of Al Qaeda's most senior and most experienced operatives, an Iraqi who was attempting to return to his native country when he was captured.

Bryan Whitman, a Pentagon spokesman, said the captive is Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi. He was received by the Pentagon from the CIA, Whitman said, but the spokesman would not say where or when al-Iraqi was captured or by whom.

The Pentagon took custody of him at Guantanamo Bay this week, Whitman said.

Whitman said the terror suspect was believed responsible for plotting cross-border attacks from Pakistan on U.S. forces in Afghanistan, and that he led an effort to assassinate Pakistan's president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

"Abd al-Hadi (al-Iraqi) was trying to return to his native country, Iraq, to manage Al Qaeda's affairs and possibly focus on operations outside Iraq against Western targets," Whitman said, adding that the terror suspect met with Al Qaeda members in Iran. He said he did not know what time period al-Iraqi was in Iran.

Another lie. We all know that Al Qaeda could never cooperate with anyone which doesn't share its Sunni Wahabist zeaoltry.

I question the timing.
