Good News from Jordan
First two BBC paragraphs:
Jordanian officials say they have arrested a senior al-Qaeda figure heavily involved in Iraq's insurgency.
Security officials in Jordan's capital, Amman, refused to identify the man, said to be a key aide to Iraq's most wanted militant, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Well done, Jordanians!
To my European nay-sayers (OK, it's one nay-sayer) has al Qaeda captured any aides to General Abizaid?
I'm not saying they are winning, just keeping up the same level of violence for, what, almost 3 years now.
Two major figures captured this week, and the insurgency doesn't miss a beat.
That is all I'm saying.
Of course, U.S. public opinion will not hold out as long as the enemy will.
That is why a tie for now is like winning.
