More Allegations of Terrorism Against Top Sunni Politicians
A couple of weeks ago, members of the Deputy Prime Minister's security details tried to blow the man they were tasked to protect; at least two of Salam al-Zoba'i's bodyguards turned out to be Al-Qaeda infiltrators.
A short while before that, there was a move to strip Abdel-Nassir al-Janabi (Sunni) of his parliamentary immunity in order to face terrorism charges for the murder of over a hundred Shi'a civilians.
Today, a Talisman Gate source alleges that U.S. and Iraqi soldiers raided the home of top Sunni parliamentary leader, Khalaf 'Alayan, in the Yarmouk district only to find sizable amounts of TNT, detonators, heavy machine guns and raw footage material that had gone into earlier jihadist propaganda videos (...specifically the attack on the American mess hall in Mosul). Mr. 'Alayan is currently in Amman, Jordan.
And somebody still thinks it is a good idea to bring back the top Ba'athists from Saddam's olden days, no questions asked, by reversing De-Ba'athification. Yeah, that'll work out fine...
