Major al-Qaeda chief captured in Iraq

Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi was one of al-Qaeda's chief operatives, described as one of bin-Laden's `globallieutenants' in charge of operations. He's been credited with commanding al Qaeda's paramilitary operations in Afghanistan and launching attacks on U.S. and coalition forces from safe areas in know, our `ally'.

Apparently he was caught trying to return to Iraq (via Iran,according to my sources) probably to take command of operations against our forces there. If nothing else, bringing someone like this in and the change in command indicates that al Qaeda has suffered significant reverses in Iraq at our hands.

al-Hadi is now another one of the guests at our tropical resort, Club Gitmo, and is described as one of 15 `high value' jihadis confined there - a classification that indicates that U.S. officials believe the capture had a significant effect on al Qaeda operations and the prisoner can provide high-quality intel.

Born in Mosul in 1960, al-Hadi had a a million dollar reward offered for his capture ..which may explain how we got him.
