Al Qaeda's Iraq leader nabbed

From the Announcements-you-won't-hear-from-Helen-Clark file, (and let's face it, you're unlikely to hear it from what passes for a news department at either TVNZ or TV3):
BAGHDAD, July 18, 2007: The U.S. command said Wednesday the highest ranking Iraqi in the leadership of Al Qaeda in Iraq has been arrested, adding that information from him indicates the group's foreign-based leadership wields considerable influence over the Iraqi chapter. [Hat tip Jameson]
News? Why do you think this should be news?

  1. Regarding the photograph.

    Ugh! Even a veil doen't cover enough of it. A full burqua would be an improvement.

    As they say, "three bags and a chainsaw!"

  2. Is that a real photo of Clark or a super-imposed image of her face?
