Investigators had the 3 Iraquis under surveillance. After noticing that there was an increase in activity, and suspicous movements before Allawi

There is speculation that the 3 individuals in question have ties with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. I am glad that alert investigators were able to stop

time to another country to try and assasinate the Iraqui leader.
