Al Qaeda Isn't in Iraq...Is It? (Or, What Media Bias?)

For those Michael Moore-ites who claim that al Qaeda isn't in Iraq, please keep reading:

BAGHDAD, Iraq – A Saudi-born member of al Qaeda involved in smuggling foreign fighters into Iraq was killed Oct. 29 as he attempted to flee Coalition Forces.

Multiple intelligence sources and tips from concerned citizens led Coalition Forces to a location near Ubaydi where a senior Saudi al Qaeda foreign fighter facilitator known as Sa’ud (aka Abu Sa’ud) would be located. Upon arrival at the location, Coalition Forces attempted to secure the vehicle containing Sa’ud and other terrorists when the driver tried to escape. Coalition Forces shot at the vehicle, killing Abu Sa’ud and three unknown terrorists.

Abu Sa’ud, a Saudi extremist, was a senior al Qaeda terrorist who funneled foreign fighters and suicide bombers into Iraq. Intelligence sources believe that Sa’ud recently arrived from Saudi Arabia to shore up the leadership of al Qaeda in Iraq foreign fighter and terrorists cells whose previous leaders have been captured or killed in recent months.

Coalition Forces were informed that an alleged meeting was being arranged in the coming days in which Sa’ud was to take control of foreign fighter facilitation in the al Qaim and Husaybah region. It was also believed that Sa’ud would take on a more active role in the planning and execution of operations against Coalition Forces.

All emphasis mine. It's getting so hot for al Qaeda in Iraq that even the guys they send in to replace the middlemen who were killed are being killed.

What's really upsetting about this is that I haven't seen a single headline about this from the usual MSM sources. I saw several outlets refer to a soldier who died from a roadside bomb yesterday, and FOXNews has an article about increased success in finding IEDs before they detonate, but nothing about this guy.(Please let me know if you see something I haven't.)

This should be top news, but it's buried beneath the usual gloom and doom. What media bias? It's in the news you don't hear as much as the news you do.

Won't matter, Pam. They'll read this and just consider it a part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy - or worse, they'll say they are there BECAUSE of the war.

And yet another one bites the dust.

Somehow being a facilitator for al Quaeda doesn't sound like it has much job security.
