Iraqi Special Forces capture Special Groups commander in Baghdad

More good news! Bill Roggio finds it, the Media ignores it. At least people like me can post it so that some people will find it. I hope that you will go and read the full article for other examples of good news from the combat zones.

Iraqi Special Forces capture Special Groups commander in Baghdad - The Long War Journal: "Iraqi Special Operations Forces have captured a senior Mahdi Army Special Groups leader in the Shula neighborhood in the Ghazaliyah district in northwestern Baghdad. The Shula neighborhood has been a target of US and Iraqi forces over the past several weeks as the fighting in Sadr City has largely subsided.

The Iraqi Special Operations Forces captured what Multinational Forces Iraq called a 'mid-level Special Groups leader' along with two associates during a raid on May 25. The commander, who is 'affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps,' is thought to lead a 300-man battalion of Mahdi Army fighters. He has been behind the kidnapping and murdering of Iraqis and works for the Ministry of Interior."
