Sorry for the misdirect, there was a DB crash and the blogÂ is now crossed in link numbers due to recovery. So if you are looking for my Fourth of July post, it’s really here, or at the titled link above.Â
Update: Heres a link toÂ the article that contains the casualty and kill figures quoted above, courtesy Captain’sÂ Quarters. Sorry for the sloppy blogging earlier, IÂ posted whileÂ on a contentious conference call at work.Â A well appreciated visitor pointed out that I should link to the actual articles asÂ well, thanks for the tip.Â TheÂ numbers quoted are really 759 captured, 104 confirmed kills.
Update II Breaking news, It’s being reported that US forces have captured a high value Al Qaida Operative, Sheikh Akeel — the only article I can find on this is from this morning’s India Daily. If it does turn out that Akeel was allied with Al Qaida it would explain the interuption of the scheduled conference by Al Maliki today.
