As Al-Sadr is Blaming al-Qaida for Baghdad Attack a group alleging it is backed by the Government of Iraq is claiming it has killed 5 members of al qaeda four of which are said to be top leaders.





Yahoo News
An armed group that says it was created with government backing to drive al-Qaida fighters out of a restive Iraqi province claimed Monday that it had killed five top members of the terrorist group.

The claim came in a statement posted on an Islamic Web site and attributed to the Anbar Revenge Brigade, recently formed by tribal leaders of the western Anbar province.

"Your brothers, heroes of the Revenge Brigade, carried out the killing of five important elements of al-Qaida group, avenging the death of the sons of our Ramadi city," the statement said.

It listed the names of four alleged al-Qaida leaders. The fifth man, it said, was from Ansar al-Sunnah, a terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaida.

The two stories combined kind of makes one wonder if attacking the mosgue was a very big mistake for al qaida? Now we have the once very outspoken Al-Sadr and other Iraqi nationals turning on them which on the surface looks like a good thing.

The part that bothers me is how on earth do they know there were at least 4 Top Leaders?

Most likely because they use to work together. But after finding out how dangerous it is to work with foreign fighters against coalition forces and seeing a different agenda by the foreign fighters, its no suprise they would kill them after seeing how much Al Qaida and its allies have brought destruction on civilians intentionally. Not to mention killing civilians may also involve many of the tribal leaders families who also lives in Iraq.

That too was my take on what it implied. So if this is true then the tides of war are turning in Iraq. Nice to see some of the Iraqi nations are coming to their senses. The sooner they all get together and fight the real enemy. the sooner it will be over.
