"So, we have 6 al Qaeda leaders captured, and possibly dozens more killed. All in the last 48 hours."
- as reported by My Pet Jawa. However, I do need to take issue with one assumtion they made to get at that number:
"But four is such a lonely number. A facilitator of foreign fighters was captured by the Iarqi Army on the Syrian border. And foreign fighters tend to mean al Qaeda. "
Foreign Fighters don't have to mean al Qaeda. They could also mean Iranian agents that we don't want to talk about.
So, perhaps the number should be 5 al Qaeda leaders captured, plus one of unknown identity. All in the last 48 hours.
