More On AQ Big Fish Capture

A lot more. Not only does Allah's typically fine research uncover precisely how big this guy was -- and, let's face it, at this point when most of us hear "high level AQ leader captured" we sort of yawn -- but it's even more delicious as it just happens to squash the spin of one of our newest (or oldest?) moonbat trolls that this is all trumped-up bullshit.

Turns out that the executive order Bush signed Sept. 23, 2001 -- twelve days after Al Qaeda -- to freeze/seize the assets of terror-related groups and persons listed this feller's name just a couple of lines below Osama bin Ladin's. And a UN report on terrorists in Afghanistan, issued before 9/11, names him again, just a few lines below OBL himself.

He's been in custody since 2006. It's been kept a secret, I suppose, in order to sweet-talk him into giving up his confederates without warning them they were being given up. (I say "sweet-talk" because all the liberals assure me this is a more effective method of interrogation than coercion, and I have to imagine the CIA employed the most effective methods possible to extract information from such a high-value detainee.)

He was sent by bin Ladin to Iraq as an envoy to coordinate with Al Qaeda's then -top asset, Zarqawi. According to that notoriously rightwing rag Newsweek (which proves its right wing credentials today with this shameful shilling on behalf of one of the biggest and oldest terrorist organizations in the world, and the precursor to Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood. Zawahiri -- AQ #2 came from there.)

I have a feeling "Col. North" isn't going to post much on this subject anymore.

I Question The Lack of Timing: Gee, why wasn't this announced before the November 2006 elections, when good news in the War on Terror, and evidence of Iraq as the central front for the war on Al Qaeda, was so desperately needed?

Could it possibly be that -- stay with me -- Bush puts national security interests ahead of partisan political ones?

Nah. That's just silly. Like a commenter proposed, Bush was just waiting for the right opportunity to release this info -- to pressure the Democrats to fund the Iraq War.
