US Captures 2 Responsible For 900 Iraqi Deaths

From a discouraged Reuters:

U.S. says caught Iraq car bombers blamed for 900 dead

Tue Mar 27, 2007

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – U.S. forces captured two leaders of a major car bomb cell responsible for attacks that killed around 900 Iraqis, mostly in the Shi’ite district of Sadr City in Baghdad, the U.S. military said on Tuesday.

It said in two separate statements that the two men were caught during operations in Adhamiya, a mainly Sunni Arab area in northern Baghdad, on March 21.

It is estimated that since November, the car bombs from this cell have killed approximately 900 innocent Iraqi citizens,” one of the statements said.

It said another 1,950 had been wounded….

U.S. military spokesman Major Steven Lamb said the two men were part of the same cell but he had no information on whether they were linked to al Qaeda or another insurgent group…

The first of the two suspects was captured when U.S. forces noticed his vehicle weaving in and out of traffic and his driver ignored signals to stop.

The second was detained around seven hours later after U.S. forces received “actionable intelligence” that led them to stop a passing vehicle, the statement said.

The Democrats had better get on the stick and end this surge before it brings peace to Iraq.
