GWOT: The Good, The Bad, And The Craven

Major Al Qaeda leader in Iraq goes to the Great Big Heavenly Whorehouse In the Clouds to cash in his frequent-killer miles with the SkyPimp Allah.

Iraqi authorities announced that the leader of al-Qaeda’s political front organization the Islamic State of Iraq, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, was killed in the Ghazaliya district in western Baghdad this morning. Later in the morning, US officials identified the killed militant as Muharib Abdul-Latif al-Jubouri, al-Qaeda’s “information minister.” There’s speculation whether it’s the same individual.

More links at the cite -- as usual, it's not a 100% sort of thing. But it looks promising -- this report (from a source I've never heard of) claims images of his bloated body in a coffin have been seen.

See-Dub reports on a "gut-wrenching" fight in Tarmiyah, in which Iraqi troops are absent, Iraqi civilians fail to warn Americans of a coming truck-bomb, and yet American troops hold off 70 to 80 insurgents until the flying cavalry comes. A massacre avoided -- but only barely, and with no help from our Iraqi "allies."

Jules Crittendon continues doing Allah's old thing -- the post with dozens of embedded links. Some of the highlights:

* Here's a bit of good news -- the surge forces are finally completely in place... almost.

* Pelosi and Reed deny that WaPo piece linked earlier, stating that Democrats had already basically caved on the timetable provisions -- but the WaPo stands by the story and the reporter says he used exact quotes from the Democrats.

* John "Silky Pony"/"Pink Sapphire" Edwards claims the War on Terror is a fiction created to permit a wide range of "unjustified" executive actions, such as fighting actual terrorists and "spying on Americans" who just happen to have al-Zawahiri on their speed dial. Here's audio from MyDD.com, but the cool thing is that there's no sitemeter on this page, so he gets no traffic.

I like how these idiots try to make their little podcasts sound like either NPR's Sunday Brunch Jazz show and/or Hugh Hefner's Playboy After Dark. 'Cause they're cool.

* A Turkish court blocks an Islamist candidate from being elected President. NYT link available at Crittendon's site, if you want to go down that road:

In the ruling, the court annulled a vote for Mr. Gul held in Parliament on Friday because there were not enough lawmakers present. Secular parties boycotted the vote.

But the ruling was more political than legal, his supporters charged. Previous presidents have been elected with fewer lawmakers present in the first round of voting. The court, they argue, reflects the interests of a secular establishment that is now mounting an assault against Mr. Erdogan and the emerging class of religious Turks that he represents.

The court “is a product of the military coup in 1960,” said Eser Karakas, a professor at Bahcesehir University in Istanbul. The court was formed after the coup to interpret the Constitution, which enshrines secularism at the heart of the state.

* More cracks in the jihadist "Islamic State of Iraq" at the Counterterrorism blog (again, link at Crittendon's; I don't want to steal all his newshawking.)

* Why Islamists hate women-- it makes them murderously angry to lose control of the inferior creatures the Pimp Allah gave them dominion over. Strangely, I'm in complete agreement with the Feminist Control of Women By Rape/Fear of the Vagina thesis here. Bernard Lewis has written of this being a major factor in Muslim rage -- not only do they lack dominion over the world as Allah commanded them to achieve and promised they would have, but they are increasing losing control of the women promised to be their sexual serfs -- so this isn't a novel idea, nor a crank one.

And on that last point -- Al Qaeda has forbidden women from eating "phallic-shaped" food.

Al Qaeda has forbidden citizens [mainly women] from: drinking Coca Cola and/or eating some types of fruits and vegetables (mainly “phallic shaped” foods such as cucumbers and bananas). Al Qaeda considers women who drink Coca Cola or eat these (obscene) fruits and vegetables to be ‘adulteresses’. Additionally, Al Qaeda has forbidden women from sitting upon chairs [instead, they must either stand or sit on the ground/floor].”

Now, while I can get behind the fatwa against women eating penis-shaped food in some narrowly-defined instances -- I wouldn't mind an edict forbidding Jackie Mackie Paisley Passey from ever again crunching down on a dick-shaped cupcake candy -- I do think they're going a bit overoard here, as usual.

Thanks to dri for that last one.
