Default Iraqi official says Al-Qaeda in Iraq is penetrated, has become an open book

Iraqi official says Al-Qaeda in Iraq is penetrated, has become an open book

Quote:
The Interior Ministry announced Friday that al-Qaeda in Iraq has been successfully penetrated by means of a recently formed government security apparatus and is virtually an "open book," confirming that the sectarian sedition in the country was at the end of its rope.

Major General Abdul Karim Khalaf, director of operations at the Interior Ministry, told KUNA here "we have succeeded in establishing a capable intelligence apparatus to penetrate the al-Qaeda organization in Iraq and all armed groups targeting Iraqi national security." He said emphatically that the sectarian sedition in Iraq has virtually ended, adding that the new intelligence apparatus is able to achieve its objectives regarding all armed groups operating in Iraq.

He went on to say that "al-Qaeda is now an open book for us, now that we have succeeded in penetrating it." Khalaf did not reveal the extent of al-Qaeda's reach in Iraq but asserted that trained Iraqi security elements currently operate under cover within this terrorist organization which he said will be dismantled soon.
So why is this story in the "Media" section and not "The War On Terror" section?...

because I want you notice WHERE the story is coming from...

India...

The New York Times doesn't report this...The Washington Post doesn't report this...In fact, googling "Al Qaeda open book" reveals just one other article about this...

From Kuwait...

American Media...Doing all it can to make sure you don't know...

My first question is this war all about what is reported in the media?

Yes and no.Philosophically there shouldn't be war at all. But if you have to have one, an important ingredient it the will of the people. Too many talking heads these days just want to bash the war (an oxymoron?), But no one wants to give credit where credit is due.
In the US, that is.

That question should be directed at the media...

For the first 3 years, their answer would've been "yes"...

But ask them now, and they'll change the topic to Brittney's breakdown...
