Saddam's Half Brother Captured


[Media Source*]

“The capture appeared to be a goodwill gesture by the Syrians to show that they are co-operating,” one official said.


He added that al-Hassan was handed over to the Iraqi authorities along with 29 other members of Saddam’s collapsed Baath Party, whose Syrian branch has been in power in Damascus since 1963.

Al-Hassan was one of the 12 in the deck of cards who was still wanted at large. His capture (according to Times) may deal a severe death blow as it will hurt the funding of the terrorist network in Iraq. Although it may look like the Syrians are cooperating with us, it seems to me they fear the "stick" from the U.S. more than they desire to fight terrorism.

As the former head of internal security, al-Hassan stands accused of the torture and killing of his half-brother’s political opponents as he cracked down brutally on internal dissent. He later became a presidential adviser, the last post he held in the former regime. In December, Iyad Allawi, the interim Prime Minister, claimed he was one of two top former Baathists who were funding the insurgency from exile in Syria and lambasted its Government for giving them safe haven.

Whatever the case it is good that Syria is handing over terrorists to Iraq where they will be tried. Now the only thing we have to wait for is for them to pull out of Lebanon. Selah.
