Abd Al-Hadi Al-Iraqi: Once A Major In Saddam's Army

I was about to caution that these Arabic names tend to be shared by many, and this is a nom de guerre anyhow, but NBC confirms it -- this high-ranking AQ officer, just a few steps below OBL himself, was formerly a major in Saddam's army.

Begging the question the MSM doesn't dare ask: how "formerly," exactly?

Thomas Joscelyn wants to know how much, if any, contact he had with his old patron while waging terrorist war for bin Ladin in Afghanistan.

Don't we all.

Or should I say, "Don't we most."

I can imagine quite a few people who are right now beginning to shriek that this man, this poor abused misunderstood idealist, must not be asked a single question more.


I Question The Naming: SobekPundit writes:

As I pointed out before, his last name is al-Iraqi. Yeah, and he's also conveniently from Iraq. Hard to imagine a faker-sounding name than that.

Makes a damn good point. It's like Lou Gerhig dying of Lou Gerhig's disease, or of the "Moon Landing" conveniently enough landing on "The Moon."

And if you believe either of those, I have a bridge to the 21st century to sell you.

So I have to admit: This story sound like complete bullshit.

The liberals are right. There's just no way a man from Iraq would return to Iraq to fight for Al Qaeda, and certainly he wouldn't give himself the name "Al Iraqi."

"Al" means "from" or "of", and who the hell names themselves a preposition?

That would be like me calling myself "Ace To Spades" or somethin'.

Bush has conned me again. I apologize for misleading you.
