How surveillance & betrayal led to Zarqawi

Offer thanksgiving to the Lord for providing the intelligence and information which led to the discovery of Iraq’s number one enemy and the FBI’s most wanted terrorist.

Proverbs 11:10
: When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.
Proverbs 28:28:
When the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding; but when the wicked perish, the righteous thrive.

Pray for Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, for all American, Iraqi and Coalition units charged with finding other terror leaders. Ask the Lord to give them wisdom, supernatural insight and vision, and information and intelligence which would lead to the capture of these leaders and all those planning and taking part in destabilizing Iraq.

In recent weeks, American officials say, they had begun following Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al- Zarqawi's "spiritual adviser," Sheik Abd al- Rahman. "This gentlemen was key to our success in finding Zarqawi," said Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell, the spokesman for the American military in Baghdad. "Through painstaking intelligence effort, they were able to start tracking him, monitoring his movements, and establishing when he was doing his link-ups with Zarqawi." An Iraqi informant inside Al Qaeda in Iraq provided the critical piece of intelligence about Rahman's meeting with Zarqawi. "We have a guy on the inside who led us directly to Zarqawi," the official said. (NY Times, Wall Street Journal)
