Terrorists just want to have fun

Multi-National Forces Iraq press release --

BAGHDAD – Coalition forces captured a suspected senior Special Groups leader Wednesday morning during an operation at Baghdad International Airport.

Intelligence sources report that the captured man is part of the most senior social and operational circles of Special Groups.

Who knew that the ultra-evil Special Groups had social circles. But there you go. The press release goes on to explain that the person was the planner of a brazen attack on a meeting in June that killed 2 State Department officials as well as 2 US soldiers and 6 Iraqis. The apparent security breach at that meeting coupled with the suspect's ability to come and go from Iraq as he pleased suggests that the Iraqi security forces are still infiltrated at a high level -- 2 years after the Surge began.

UPDATE: Unbelievable. The arrested official is Ali al-Lami, head of the de-Baathification screening commission.
