The U.S. captured Abu Ghadiyain, Al Qaeda's senior coordinator operating in Syria. The U.S. believe Abu Ghadiyain was sending money, weapons and fighters into Iraq to be used against American troops. "Ninety percent of foreign fighters enter Iraq through Syria, according to U.S. intelligence estimates, bringing cash to Al Qaeda in Iraq's chief. They also are deadly — trained in bomb-making and willing to sacrifice themselves in suicide attacks."
U.S. military official in Washington confirmed Sunday that special forces had conducted a raid in Syria that targeted the network of Al Qaeda-linked foreign fighters moving through Syria into Iraq. "We are taking matters into our own hands," the official told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the political sensitivity of cross-border raids."
I'm glad to see our military is still on the offensive against terrorist. However if McCain doesn't win the election then those days will come to an end. Obama will take us back to sitting on our hands and waiting to be attacked again.
