U.S. Creates Task Force to Target Al-Zarqawi WASHINGTON Mark Hatfield Endorses Bush (wow) PayPal Still Sucks Related Posts Fighting terrorism Good Riddance When the defendant is the US, the guilty bar is lowered to the floor About The Author Paul 5 Comments Cz September 25, 2004 I think one of the problems earlier may have been the reluctance of the common Iraqi citizens to provide info on these terrorists. That is now likely changing, as Iraqis begin to realize that the bombings are killing primarily their own people. Once the local intelligence begins to aid the task force, I suspect there will be some long-awaited victories in this quest. kenny September 25, 2004 I’d be more impressed if the bush administration hadn’t decided not to bomb the terrorist camp that Zarqawi has based in 3 times before the start of the Iraq war. Of course the fact that the Zarqawi camp was in Kurdish controlled northern Iraq might have weakened bush’s ‘case’ that Saddam supported terrorists, which would only have left the ‘WMD’ case for war………. McGehee September 25, 2004 What is the frequency, Kenny? harkyman September 25, 2004 You announce something like this because you expect it to bear fruit, soon. The fact that we hit one of their big guys this week in an Israel-style car-shot means something specific. The Israelis are able to pull off those kinds of attacks because they have inside info. This means that we have it now, too. This also may indicate that our commanders are confident enough in these sources to publicly announce that we’re going after the son of a bitch. David September 26, 2004 Huh… ya know, I could have sworn I heard about this particular unit way back in January, although perhaps not with this designation. Is it possible that this is just some confusion caused by a reorg?
