Aforementioned Backup Guy pointed out this Guardian piece. Anyone remember a war on terror?
Signs of a new irregular enemy, or the perception of one, were to be seen yesterday afternoon at a position held by the marine’s 5th regiment as they waited for the order to go forward. Troops captured a man alleged to be a Sudanese “jihadist” – one who had come to Iraq to fight against the US on religious grounds.
The man, looking frightened and with his hands bound behind his back, was driven away for interrogation on the bonnet of a Humvee. Marines on the scene gave few details but said he was one of two “jihadists” they had captured.
Any overlap of the invasion of Iraq and America’s proclaimed war on terror would be a disturbing development, whether it was real or in the minds of the invaders.
