Intriguing News

A Tuesday dispatch from Reuters states the following:

U.S. troops captured a number of key figures involved in what they described as "transnational terrorism" in Baghdad, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

Describing a raid on a sports complex in the east of the capital Monday, the military said in a statement that "several suspected senior level transnational terrorists, including key leaders, operatives, and financiers" had been detained.

It gave no further details beyond saying the complex was "the base of operations for transnational terrorist members."

"This operation put a serious dent in the transnational terrorism in Baghdad," Colonel Robert Abrams of the 1st Cavalry Division was quoted as saying in the statement.

Hmmm. Looking forward to hearing some details, once it's safe to release them. Could this guy possibly be among those captured? I for one hope so.
