As Al-Sadr is Blaming al-Qaida for Baghdad
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
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?
