    Odd source: let's see what Reuters etc come up with...

    If true, he is a dead man walking... I wonder exactly how many people want a piece of him and the political tussle that may ensue.

    Who knows what effect this may have on the 'insurgents', but this is significant news, regardless of your opinions of the war & subsequent occupation...

    Also: Conveniently timed for the upcoming elections in Iraq. Hmmm...

    Doesn't seem to have been picked up by anyone else yet. If true, will it make any difference?

    interestingly enough, i went to the quoted source "al-Bayane" and could not find the story that is being referenced. and none of the majors are running with the story either.

    as big as a catch as he is, the u.s. would be tooting it's horn pretty loudly by now. i'm very skeptical...

    January surprise?

    I hope it's true. I doubt it, but I hope it's true. Contrary to what neo-cons say, Bush-haters are actually against terrorists. That's why we hate him, because he is so ineffectual against the real threats. Here's hoping he got lucky and this makes things better for our troops.

    Yes... I'm even for the troops, too :eek: (unlike a certain 2-faced administration).

    Maybe this would explain it:
