Recently seized documents that led to al-Zarqawi's death also revealed the hideouts and names of other al Qaeda in Iraq leaders and could destroy the terror network, Iraq's national security adviser said Thursday.
"Al Qaeda is on the run now in Iraq, and this is the beginning of the end of al Qaeda in Iraq," Mowaffak al-Rubaie told CNN.
The documents, he said, were found on a "thumb drive" memory card with 1 gigabyte of memory and represented "a trove of information ... a treasure of data." The discovery was among many made during an ongoing operation that began before the June 7 airstrike that killed al-Zarqawi.
American and Iraqi forces have killed 104 insurgents in 452 raids nationwide since al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed last week, the U.S. military said.
Caldwell said sweeps across Iraq since al-Zarqawi's death led to 28 significant arms caches. He said 255 of the raids were joint operations, while 143 were carried out by Iraqi forces alone.
The al-Qaida document said its insurgency was being hurt by an increase in U.S.-trained Iraqi forces, by widespread arrests and seizures of weapons, and by a crackdown on financial outlets.
BONUS FROM ROADS TO IRAQ
Don’t believe a single word of this fake document, also don’t believe that such a document exists, for a single reason it’s came from Mowaffaq al-Rubaie.
Al-Rubaie [head of National Intelligence Coordination Commission] being Iraqi security adviser, is one of the two untouchables in the Iraqi government, the other one is Muhammad al-Shahwani [head National Intelligence Service].
Both appointed by the Americans and reports to the American directly [the CIA], not to the Iraqi government, the agencies [security agency and intelligence agency] are not taking orders from any Iraqi high authority, defense ministry, the ministry of interior affaires and not even from prime minister.
