Beheading Mastermind Captured in Iraq

The good news, it just keeps on a rollin! Another of Iraq's most wanted, Ahmed Hussein Dabash Samir al-Batawi, was captured by Iraqi forces. This follows the announcement of the capture of top Zarqawi aide Kassim al-Ani, also on Baghdad's most wanted list.

As Traderrob notes (hat tip & thanks for the image): Dropping like flies, just a matter of time before we nail the big one. And by 'the big one' he means al Qaeda in Iraq's Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Khaleej Times:

“The anti-terrorism unit arrested the terrorist Ahmed Hussein Dabash Samer Al Battawi on Monday in the Firdos district in the capital Baghdad,” the statement said.

Battawi confessed after he was arrested that he had “chopped off the heads of hundreds of innocent Iraqis” in Baghdad and other parts of the country, said the statement.
