Al-Qaida leader in Iraq confirms the obvious: He' a rat.

Al-Qaida leader caught, spills beans on terror network

Multi-National Corps – Iraq

Coalition forces announced the capture of Umar Hasan al-Rashid al-Dusuri, aka, Ja’far ‘Abdallah Jasim Abdallah, an al-Qaida in Iraq terrorist originally from Saudi Arabia.

Ja’far ‘Adballah admitted to being a member of al-Qaida, and said he illegally entered Iraq through Syria in July 2005. He provided extensive information about the network targeting innocent Iraqi civilians, with the goal of encouraging sectarian violence through Iraq. He admitted to working with multiple terrorist cells throughout Tikrit and the Salah Ad Din province.

The terrorist admitted to participating in the Peshmerga checkpoint attack on May 21 in al-Dhuluiya, where he was shot in the neck. He was designated as a suicide bomber in the terrorist organization and was only waiting for a mission to be assigned, he said.

Ja’far ‘Abdallah was captured during a raid in Tikrit announced earlier in the month that also resulted in the successful capture of another senior al-Qaida leader in the region. He provided Coalition forces with additional insight into the leadership and operations of al-Qaida in Iraq.

Where does Al-Qaida find these brave, loyal and steadfast volunteers?
