A Bad Day to be a Terrorist

No progress, eh?

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon announced Friday the capture of one of al Qaida's most senior and most experienced operatives, an Iraqi who was trying to return to his native country when he was captured.

US forces on Friday detained four members of a gang suspected of smuggling armour-piercing bombs from Iran to Iraq and sending back militants for "terroristtraining", the military said.

Even the Saudi's chipped in:

Police arrested 172 Islamic militants, some of whom had trained abroad as pilots so they could fly aircraft in attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields, the Interior Ministry said Friday. A spokesman said all that remained in the plot “was to set the zero hour.”

Not bad for a day's work.
