U.S. Raid In Syria

Al Qaida commander Abu Ghadiya was the target of a raid by U.S. commandos inside Syria over the weekend. Ghadiya, who may have been among nine people killed in the attack was responsible for smuggling foreign fighters into Iraq through Syria. He was a top Lt. to Al Qaida in Iraq’s late leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi. Sources say neutralizing Ghadiya might be the last nail in the coffin for al Qaida in Iraq. Al Qaida has already begun shifting resources from Iraq to Afghanistan.
