Jihadis Becoming Worm Food

And Another One Bites The Dust

WASHINGTON U.S.-led forces have killed one of the most important leaders of Al Qaeda in Iraq, a Tunisian believed connected to the kidnapping and killings last summer of American soldiers, a top commander said Friday.

Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson said the death of the terrorist in a U.S. airstrike Tuesday south of Baghdad, and recent similar operations against Al Qaeda, have left the organization in Iraq fractured.

"Abu Usama al-Tunisi was one of the most senior leaders ... the emir of foreign terrorists in Iraq and part of the inner leadership circle," Anderson said.

Al-Tunisi was a leader in helping bring foreign terrorists into the country and his death "is a key loss" to Al Qaeda leadership there, Anderson told a Pentagon news conference.

"He operated in Yusufiyah, southwest of Baghdad, since the second battle of Fallujah in November '04 and became the overall emir of Yusufiyah in the summer of '06," Anderson said in a videoconference from Baghdad.

"His group was responsible for kidnapping our American soldiers in June 2006," Anderson said.

He did not name the soldiers and Pentagon officials said they did not immediately know whom he was referring to. But three U.S. soldiers were killed that month in an ambush-kidnapping that happened while they were guarding a bridge.

Spc. David J. Babineau was killed at a river checkpoint south of Baghdad on June 16, 2006, and Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas Tucker were abducted. The mutilated bodies of the kidnapped soldiers were found three days later, tied together and booby-trapped with bombs.

Anderson said recent coalition operations also have helped cut in half the previous flow of foreign fighters into Iraq, which had been at about 60 to 80 a month.

He credited the work of the Iraqi Department of Border Enforcement and U.S. teams.

Commanders have said previously that the increase in troops ordered by President Bush in January — and the increased operations that followed — have pushed militants into the remote parts of the north and south of the country. Additional operations have been going after those pockets of fighters.

"We're having great success in isolating these pockets," Anderson said.

"They are very broken up, very unable to mass, and conducting very isolated operations," he said. He could not estimate the number of foreign fighters in Iraq but said they commit over 80 percent of suicide bombings in the country.

Anderson laid out a series of operations over the last two weeks that led up to the air strike that killed al-Tunisi in the town of Musayib.

He said an associate of al-Tunisi's was captured in one mission on Sept. 12 in Baghdad and another with links to him was captured Sept. 14 in Mahmudiyah when coalition forces targeted the network that facilitates the flow of foreign fighters in the southern belts around Baghdad.

More associates were captured over the next few days. On Sept. 25, commanders received information that a meeting was taking place near Musayib with al-Tunisi and other Al Qaeda in Iraq members. A U.S. Air Force F-16 aircraft attacked the target.

Al-Tunisi's presence was confirmed by a detainee who had just fled the area before the attack and was captured minutes later, Anderson said.

San Francisco bans Marines filming
San Franciscans protest Blue Angels

What flippin’ Idiots This is the thinking of a total imbecile; utterly self-centered, totally lost to reality. And further, these moonbats think that the US Deptartment of Defense, should be changed to “Department of Peace”,,,,,Whaaaaaa?
Left alone these fools would be wearing Bhurkas and Veils. Those left alive, of course because homosexuality is punishable by death, or to be “dolled up” can mean imprisonment. To be shopping or on the street unescorted can get the death sentence for a lady.
To bar the Military from their city, should be made, “Returnable”, leaving the Military to not come there to save their sorry asses. High School students can join street gangs, but are denied membership in a properly regimented program like JROTC. Who in hell do they think kept them from having to put up with Jap Subs in the harbor in WWII? This sorry syndrome is not limited to the Bay area, but rather to other areas as well.
Why do Americans not all act as patriotic about our wartime as our parents did during the horror of WWII. Why are so many who still have not learned that to be Political Correct is to be in total submission. Better check on the size of that Bhurka, get it ready to wear, because to be Politically Correct sure as hell will have you wearing it.
Politicians, and their voters, are more dedicated to their party than to America. This is not good for America, no matter what your party, or who wins/loses the Prez election in 2008. The Islamic radical, (our enemy who hast attacked us), sees no political parties in the USA, just one big, proud, red, white and blue flag. Any appeasement offered is taken by them and used as leverage to “keep on coming”. It would behoove all of us to support our military, and our country. According to the rules of the enemy, an American civilian casualty, holds the same prestige as killing a soldier. They’ll use their children to kill your children, with no second thoughts. They do not line up offshore, in ships, and then invade They will be in your government, including local, state, and national. If you read British news or even watch FOXNews, you’ll see just how serious it has gotten in England, France and other European locations.
These anti-military sorts in San Francisco have such a weak argument that they have to use false reasons in order to attempt to deny it. The Marines request to film a commercial was denied because of “Traffic problems”, while the fag/lez gay pride parade goes on. The Blue Angels demonstration was protested because of the danger of of the possibility of one of the planes crashing into residential areas, while AIDS is rampant throughout the city, killing more residents than all military demonstrations nationwide have ever done. They know that to just say that they don’t want it because they hate the military is a reason that just won’t fly.
Since these wackos are adamant in their stance on this, I feel that the only fitting response from responsible America would be to leave them to their own end, not tour there, arrange flights to not use their airports, and to not support any actions of theirs at all. For my part, I have Anti- San Francisco designs in my online shop, such as the one at the top if this post. They can be seen at:
