US Troops Capture 61 Al Qaeda Terrorists In Iraq

What's this? Al Qaeda in Iraq? How can that be?

From Saudi-owned Reuters:

US troops say seize 61 al Qaeda in Iraq members

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – U.S. military operations in the province of Anbar, west of Baghdad, have resulted in the capture of 61 members of al Qaeda in Iraq, Major General Rick Lynch, a U.S. military spokesman, said on Thursday.

Bomb making equipment, weapons and munitions were seized in the raids on the training and bomb making facility in an area 50 km (30 miles) northeast of Falluja, Lynch said.

Some of al Qaeda in Iraq's "critical facilitators" were included in the 61 people captured, he said.

Note that Reuters thought this story only merited three sentences.

Of course the rest of our one party media seems to be ignoring it all together.
