Oh, gee, what a surprise. You mean the Bush administration orchestrated another bigger-than-life lie about Iraq and the war on terror? (And you know they orchestrated this entire thing - Iraq didn't capture the guy, we must have handed him to them to make it look like the Iraqi government is now all grown up.) And this bit of puffery only took a few hours to show through as much ado about perhaps-not-nothing, but not nearly as much as claimed. Just add it to the list of propaganda being fed to the American people by the Republicans instead of a coherent plan for victory. Though at this point, I'd just settle for the truth.
Now from the NYT:
But an American military official was more cautious in describing Mr. Saeedi’s place in the Al Qaeda pecking order. While Mr. Saeedi was certainly a "top-tier guy" who supervised the insurgents who carried out the Samarra mosque bombing, "I’m not sure we are ready to put a number on him," the American official said. "It’s a very decentralized operation."
