Lynch, who is an operations officer as well as a spokesman, said as a result the main entry point for foreign fighters has now been shut down and al-Zarqawi is having a difficult time carrying out attacks. At least 96 percent of suicide bombers are from outside of Iraq, he added.
?His weapon of choice is suicide bombers,? Lynch said. ?In the month of November: only 23 suicide attacks; the lowest we?ve seen in the last seven months, the direct result of the effectiveness of our operations.?
Lynch said U.S. and Iraqi forces have discovered 301 weapons caches in November, the largest number captured in a single month this year. At least 117 al-Qaida members have also been killed or captured in 2005, he added. He said al-Zarqawi has suffered as a result.
?He?s struggling because we?ve taken away a lot of his leadership, we?ve taken away a lot of his munitions, he?s struggling because we?ve denied him safe havens across Iraq,? Lynch said.
Kidnapping is okay -- so long as it serves political or financial goals for a terrorist organization. It's also fine if it draws attention to a political issue like, say, Chechnya. You should also stay distant from hostages -- literally -- lest you get to close to them, both physically and mentally. These are just a few of the parting tips offered by a top al-Qaida strategists before he was killed in 2004.
WASHINGTON - Anti-war activists furious with Sen. Hillary Clinton are vowing to bird-dog her everywhere she goes, starting with a swanky Manhattan fund-raiser tonight.
Clinton's letter last week clarifying her position on Iraq - which included rejecting a timetable for withdrawal - fanned the anger of some war opponents, who decided to launch a campaign against New York's junior senator.

Eu critico toda e qualquer forma de terrorismo. Sejam bombistas, raptores, ..., seja o que forem, estou contra quem tira a vida do próximo (sem qualquer tipo de razão).
