Troops Target Al Qaeda In Mosul

Will the Obamessiah redeploy the troops then send them right back in?

Coalition and Iraqi security forces are targeting al-Qaeda terrorists who have taken refuge in Mosul after fleeing Baghdad in the wake of surge operations, a senior U.S. military officer posted in Iraq said Sunday.

“Mosul, as you know, is the center of al-Qaeda terrorist activities today,” Navy Rear Adm. Gregory J. Smith, a Multi-National Force – Iraq spokesman, told reporters at a Baghdad news conference.

Al-Qaeda had sought to use Baghdad as the center of its operations in Iraq, Smith noted. But now that they’ve been largely driven out of the Iraqi capital, he said, Mosul has become al-Qaeda’s “strategic center of gravity.”

Coalition and Iraqi forces have captured or killed 142 al-Qaeda terrorists in Mosul since the start of the year, Smith said. One of those terrorists, seized during a Feb. 18 operation, was a top Mosul-based al-Qaeda leader involved in foreign-terrorist transport, suicide bombings and kidnappings, the admiral said.

The capture of this terrorist “led us to make significant gains in intelligence on al Qaeda’s operations in and around Mosul,” Smith said. Information gained from the capture of the terrorist led to the recent deaths of two other senior al Qaeda leaders operating in Mosul who were killed during a Coalition air strike, he said.

Instead of fighting the Islamic jihadists in the God forsaken territory of Afghanistan and Pakistan, we get to fight them on the ground of our choosing. Makes sense. In true Reality Land, of course.
