Congratulations to 4 years!! These guys are actually the first blog I ever read. I was looking for “real” news directly out of Iraq and ran into Iraq the Model. They’re now bigtime Pajamas Media guys.
Good for them.
And today they have an interesting story out of Baghdad about an attack prevented. It sounds like it would have been quite big too.
Yesterday a joint US-Iraqi force with help from local anti-al-Qaeda awakening fighters in the Adhamiyah district in northeastern Baghdad found and disarmed more than 20 vehicles rigged as VBIEDs in a parking lot.
Fortunately this has been prevented and whatever their plan was, it’s vapor now and they will have to start all over again… That’s if they don’t get caught, killed or kicked out of the neighborhood, which seems to be happening quite often these days!
