U.S. forces seize a top al Qaeda leader

Squeeze whatever information you can outta him then turn him over to the Iraqi people. He'll plead for a ticket to Club Gitmo.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S. forces have captured a senior al Qaeda in Iraq leader accused of killing hundreds of Iraqi civilians, including women and children, the U.S. military said in a statement on Wednesday.

The military said the "terrorist leader", whom they did not identify, was captured on December 14 in the northern city of Mosul in a raid which also netted five other suspects.

"The terrorist leader was captured when Coalition Forces raided a known terrorist meeting place. (He) was attempting to flee from the location when Coalition Forces chased him across a street and detained him," it said in a statement.
