The U.S. Military in Iraq has captured the deputy military chief of the Iranian-sponsored Hizbullah, coalition officials said.
Iraqi sources said the U.S. Army has arrested the No. 2 figure in Hizbullah's military wing. The sources said the unidentified Hizbullah commander was responsible for training the Iranian-backed Mahdi Army in the Baghdad area.
"The arrest is a major achievement and could provide an intelligence bonanza," an Iraqi source said.
The U.S.-led coalition has reported the capture of a senior Iranian operative south of Baghdad. In a coalition statement, the operative was described as a "primary weapons smuggler and financier for Iranian-backed enemy fighters."
Iran is in for the long haul, and they won't quit if we quit. Staying in Iraq is not only about making Iraq a stable country, but also to keep it a democracy. Iran is not a good influence, and seeks to divide the country. If Sunni Muslims turned on Al-Qaeda, it's time for Shiite Muslims to turn on Iran. We'll see how this develops.
