U.S. eager and it shows in Iraq (Killed Same Al Qaeda Leader Twice)
Source: Examiner.com

The U.S. command in Baghdad this week ballyhooed the killing of a key al Qaeda leader but later admitted that the military had declared him dead a year ago.

A military spokesman acknowledged the mistake after it was called to his attention by The Examiner. He said public affairs officers will be more careful in announcing significant kills.

The incident shows the eagerness of the command to show progress in dismantling al Qaeda at a time when Democrats and some Republicans are pressing President Bush to withdraw troops from Iraq. Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander, has declared al Qaeda enemy No. 1 in Iraq.

Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner began his Monday news conference with a list of top insurgents either killed or captured in recent operations. He said they had been eliminated "in the past few weeks" and were "recent results."

"In the north, Iraqi army and coalition forces continue successful operations in Mosul," he told reporters. "Kamal Jalil Uthman, also known as Said Hamza, was the al Qaeda in Iraq military emir of Mosul. He planned, coordinated and facilitated suicide bombings, and he facilitated the movement of more than a hundred foreign fighters through safe houses in the area." All told, Bergner devoted 68 words to Uthman's demise.

Took us a year .....


Lying sacks of shit and the public doesn't get it. I'll be 100 watching a documentary some future generation puts on "exposing" the lies of the right and this admin and the injustices suffered" or a documentary on "the decline and fall of the US", and I'll be stomping my foot and yelling as I do know, "Do you see" - "I knew it all along and no one would listen."

:cry:

6. Not to mention ...
that the #2 al Qaeda guy has a new video out.
He has been killed about 22 times since 9/11.

Why can't they really catch this guy.

Cheers

7. Hey, people in the middle east have been
known to come back from the dead, right?

Until last week with that poor little girl, I would not have believed a pool could suck intestines out of a person either.
