A top special operations officer from Lebanon's Iranian-backed militia Hezbollah has been captured in Iraq, where U.S. officials say he played a key role in a January attack that killed five Americans.Source
Ali Mussa Daqduq, an explosives expert, was captured in March in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, where he was helping train and lead Shiite militias fighting coalition troops, U.S. intelligence officials told CNN.
Daqduq pretended to be deaf and mute when captured, and his identity was not known for weeks, the officials said.
Once uncovered, however, they said he began to talk, and they now believe he played a crucial role in the January 20 attack in Karbala.
Daqduq was captured in March, started talking in April, and has been singing like a canary ever since. He was captured with two other high level operatives working on Iran's payroll.
Iran is trying to do to Iraq what it is doing to Lebanon via Hezbollah, and doing to the Palestinians with Hamas. Imagine half the world patrolled by Hezbollah thugs and the other half patrolled by Al Qaida thugs. That is the world Caliphate, with a hudna between Sunni and Shia. Would you want to be caught in the crossfire between that two set of thugs? They do not use smart bombs to save civilians. They simply kill them all and let Allah sort them out.
