Another fallen freedom fighter?

Tribes claim leader of al Qaeda in Iraq killed
POSTED: 8:01 a.m. EDT, May 1, 2007

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Unconfirmed reports that al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri has been killed come from local tribes and not Iraq's intelligence services or military, an Iraqi government spokesman said Tuesday.

Ali al-Dabbagh, spokesman for Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, said the government won't be able to confirm al-Masri's death until it makes an identification of the body.

"Iraqi security forces do not have the body," al-Dabbagh said on Iraqi state TV. "Iraqi security forces and Multi-National Forces are trying to retrieve the body for visual identification and DNA tests."

The reports of al-Masri's death emerged after a confrontation Tuesday between Sunni tribes and al Qaeda in Iraq at a bridge in an area under Sunni tribal control, Dabbagh said.

Earlier Tuesday, an Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman said "very strong intelligence" indicated al-Masri was killed in fighting between rival militant groups north of Baghdad.

"We received intelligence reports of al-Masri getting killed in clashes between al Qaeda in Iraq and other militant groups at dawn today" in al-Niba'ie in Taji, north of Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf said.

The U.S. military and U.S. Embassy in Baghdad had no information on the reports.

"I have no confirmation of what is being reported in the Iraqi media," said military spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver.

In February, Iraq's Interior Ministry claimed Iraqi security forces wounded al-Masri in another clash north of Baghdad, but the U.S. military cast doubt on that report. The ministry never backed away from its claim.

Al-Masri -- also known as Sheikh Abu Hamza al-Muhajer -- succeeded Abu Musab al-Zarqawi as the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq after he was killed in a U.S. airstrike in June.

Recently, the insurgent umbrella group Islamic State of Iraq posted a list of Cabinet members and named al-Masri as its "war minister."

The group, which includes al Qaeda in Iraq and other insurgents, claimed responsibility for a number of violent acts last month -- a suicide attack at the Iraqi parliament, the killings of nine U.S. soldiers in Diyala province and the execution of 20 security force officers.

On Saturday, the group distributed leaflets in Samarra to police, warning that they have three days to "repent" or be killed.

The insurgent group also told police to use loudspeakers at mosques and marketplaces to announce their rejection of the "apostate state" and their joining of the "Islamic State."

These guys are almost Matrix-like. You kill one, and next thing you know, another guy who looks just like the last one is coming at you out of nowhere. You'd think they'd run out eventually.

There's no question in my mind that the Iraqi's should be further along with $500 billion of our equipment and people put in-place. I just don't know how dissatisfaction with progress equates to withdrawal. Might as well cut off your own nose just to spite your face.

Why would they run out? We are fighting a deep seated hatred ideology toward the Western civilizations dates back to the 11th century. The only way to stop them from coming back is to do what Hitler did to the Jews, massive genocide. Are you ready for another Holocaust?

If not, then don't go stir the hornet's nest.

Did the Administrations not say Iraqi and al-Qaeda are closely related? Hence the reason to invade that country?

It is a horrible choice, but it can be the only choice once they get "islamic bomb".

If they have the "islamic bomb" then it makes the job that much easier. Building ovens are a lot of work.

Not sure if we have that much Mexicans to do the job. Personally, I don't want to take them away from mowing our lawns and washing dishes in our restaurants. Though the housing boom has slowed, building that much ovens probably outstrip our supply and demand curve.
