What? The war is not over? The insurgents are not all dead? Aww, hell! CNN is reporting that a new leader in Iraq has been named for the Qaeda in Iraq network.
The Web sites identified the successor as Sheikh Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, which means “the immigrant,” implying he — like the Jordanian al-Zarqawi — is not Iraqi.
Hmm. Not Iraqi? Now I wonder what event could have caused these foreign fighters to have entered Iraq? Anyone got any guesses? Here’s a clue.
Meanwhile, the article goes on to report, more than two dozen are killed in new attacks. Also mentioned is that we killed 7 terrorists in what sounds like fallout from the Al-Zarqawi raid. The bad news? Along with the terrorists, we managed to kill a 6 month old boy and a 4 year old boy. Yes, I’m sure this will give the President a boost in poll numbers. Yikes! U.S. Maj. Gen. William Caldwell called this “an extremely unfortunate situation”. Is there an understatement of the week award? I hereby nominate this comment.
