Death Squad Leaders Flee Iraq Before Surge

Death Squad Leaders Flee Baghdad Ahead of Troop Surge, Former Iraqi Official Says
Fox News

According to Fox News, Death squad leaders have fled Baghdad to evade capture or killing by U.S. and Iraqi forces before the start of the troop "surge" and security crackdown in the capital.

A former senior Iraqi minister said most of the leaders loyal to Muqtada al-Sadr, the radical anti-American cleric, had gone into hiding in Iran.

Among those said to have fled is Abu Deraa, theShiite militia leader whose appetite for sectarian savagery has been compared to that of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, who was killed last year.

The Former minister who did not want to be named, said that Prime Minster Nouri Al-Maliki had encouraged them to leave Baghdad. He further stated that weapons belonging to the Mahdi Army have been hidden inside the Iraqi Interior Ministry to avoid confiscation.
Maliki said last week: "I know that senior criminals have left Baghdad, others have left the country. This is good — this shows that our message is being taken seriously."

The flight from Baghdad could impede American plans to target the leaders of death squads.

Other leaders who have left ahead of the surge are Ah bedda Ghetowda Heeri, and I bin Reelybad. Mulla Overthis has left uncharecteristically quickly along with Sheik Aleg. In an effort to avoid attention all have reportedly trimmed their beards and changed their names to Mohammad.

No one ever accused moslem "leaders" of being brave. That is for their idiot, sheeplike, braindead followers who perform suicide acts like good little cultists.

It also hasn't helped that this surge has been a public headline. Nothing like a non-secret offensive operartion. I hope our Special Forces have been busy the last few months around Sadr-City.

Bwahahaha, as expected, they want someone else to die for their cause, as we look at their retreating asses through the binoculars swing the field of view to the left, a bit more please, there, can you see the enemy? Adjust the focus, now look at the same class of gutless wonders that want us to die for them and their cause, like the Muzzie leaders leaving the battlefield the Democrats in both houses are doing the same. Whether it be Moslem fanatics, Nazi's or Communists, they are all the same, we're fighting them abroad while they're taking over here.

Guess the human suicide bomb supply is running low. That and it's gettin' a bit warm for them. And they know they'll never hear it when death comes. The neighbors on the other hand will hear a really loud explosion.
