Musahem Al Jabouri, a police officer only four months on the job thwarted the attack of an Al Qaeda truck bomber, intent on breaking terrorists out of a jail. He ran out from the compound as the truck approach and shot the driver but died in the explosion. His brother received an award commemorating his valor from the US Forces, as Iraq does not have medals yet. Video from CNN below, but first this quote from Al Jabouri’s surviving brother, Bassim Al Jabouri:
I think my brother is a martyr, but the insurgents are not martyrs. They will go to hell. They are evil in this world.
This is so true — Al Qaeda and the Taliban have murdered more muslims than the American forces, and they continually destroy lives, mutilate men, women, and children, and try by every means to crush the future and the dreams of the Iraqi people.
Expect the ACLU to go ballistic – today a United States District Court Judge hearing the Padilla case refused to toss out wiretap evidence as requested by the defense. WTG Marcia Cooke! (That’s Marcia in the Middle of this photo taken at aBroward County Federal Bar Association luncheon meeting,) The defense has also tried to have the word “terrorist” and “terrorism” banned, along with Osama Bin Laden, and other terrorist names. AP has filed a motion for release of the tapes once they are admitted as evidence, so expect some interesting recordings soon.
I almost did a story on this last night when I read the new article in the Pakistan Daily Times but to me it’s old news. This has been going on a long time.
The Taliban cannot stand against soldiers or real men, so instead they attack women and schoolgirls. They burn the schools, they throw acid in the faces of girls walking to school, and they kill teachers. With the Taliban it’s always the women and children who suffer most.
