Al Qaida Network Decimated By Joint Security Efforts
The forces of Al Qaeda should just give up, as they are proving to not be any match at all to the joint efforts by the coalition and the Iraq Army and Iraqi Police. The joint forces are finding out and discovering any efforts by insurgents or terrorists to mount any organized attack, and the number of attempts have drastically fallen off. Much of this is suspected to be because they simply never get out of the starting gate in any plot to cause an attack or criminal activity.
The Coalition and the ISF forces mounted 15 raids in the last six weeks, and these different raids yielded the deaths of 15 different terrorist suspects, as well as the arrest of an additional 4 suspected Al Qaeda members.
Coalition Forces have came a long way since first responding to the Iraq crisis, and the majority of the security work is now being done by the Iraqi forces, with the Coalition providing back up.
The number of attacks is down, and the number of different terrorist suspects is also declining, many members of Al Qaeda have simply packed up and left town rather than face capture or death by the increasingly efficient members of the joint Iraqi and coalition forces.
Coalition forces are also able to interact with the community at a much greater success rate since the surge last year.
