Iraq update October 4, 2007

Al Qaeda in Iraq just keeps getting taken apart. They're still somewhat dangerous, but they are losing human resources as well as this major hit to their financial resources. From MNF-I with Iraqi forces, U.S. Special Forces detain al-Qaeda financier
  • During one of the operations, Soldiers from the 6th Iraqi Army Division detained a suspected al-Qaeda financier in Kindi. The extremist financier is suspected of traveling to foreign countries to acquire financial support for terrorist activities and is suspected of supplying more than $50,000 to al-Qaeda each month. He is believed to have received $100,000,000 this summer from terrorist supporters who cross the Iraq border illegally or fly into Iraq from Italy, Syria and Egypt.
And, on the human resources AQ is losing, more from MNF-I - Coalition forces detain 12 suspects during operations to disrupt al-Qaeda
  • BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces captured two wanted terrorists and detained an additional ten suspects during operations Wednesday in central and northern Iraq.

MNF-I - Coalition forces disrupt al-Qaeda killing six terrorists, two suspects detained
  • BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces killed six terrorists and detained two suspects during operations Monday and Tuesday targeting associates of al-Qaeda in Iraq in the central part of the country.

MNF-I - Coalition forces disrupt al-Qaeda network: one killed, 10 detained
  • BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces killed one terrorist, captured two wanted individuals and detained eight suspects during operations Tuesday targeting al-Qaeda in Iraq associates in central and northern Iraq.

MNF-I - Iraqi Security Forces kill three al-Qaeda terrorists outside of Tikrit
  • TIKRIT, Iraq – Iraqi Security Forces, acting swiftly on tips from local Iraqi sources, killed three known terrorists after conducting a raid in the al-Jazeera desert, 15 miles east of Tikrit, Sept. 30.

And, that's just the losses for Al Qaeda in Iraq for the last couple of days. The Special Groups are getting hammered just as badly.
