Good news from Iraq from Fox News via KHON2, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
BAGHDAD, Iraq “” Iraqi citizens turned over a high-ranking Al Qaeda member known as “the Butcher” to U.S. forces in Ramadi Friday a military statement said.
Amir Khalaf Fanus was No. 3 on the 28th Infantry Division’s High Value Individual list for Ramadi, wanted for murder and kidnapping in connection with his affiliation with Al Qaeda in Iraq.
“He is the highest ranking Al Qaeda in Iraq member to be turned into Iraqi and U.S. officials by local citizens,” Capt. Jeffrey S. Pool said in a statement released from Camp Blue Diamond in Ramadi. “His capture is another indication that the local citizens tire of the insurgents’ presence within their community.”
Good. Hope it keeps up.
