Iraq: Good News Bad News
Capt. Phillip T. Esposito and 1st Lt. Louis E. Allen were killed by one of their own. Not as previously believed by enemy action. Staff Sgt. Alberto B. Martinez is being held on two charges of premeditated murder, it is believed he did this as revenge for disciplinary action taken against him.
Abu Talha, described as the leader of insurgent forces in Mosul has been captured, apparently without a fight. This is very interesting. It make me wonder how far inside the insurgent groups our intelligence groups have penetrated, or if they just were tailing him and waiting for the right time to pounce. I suppose we'll know in fifty or so years when everyone involved is safely dead.
