The L.A. Times reports:
At least 30 suspected insurgents have been killed in two days of operations being conducted in Diyala province as part of a major thrust by U.S. and Iraqi forces to clear Al Qaeda operatives from the region, the military said today.
Soldiers conducting Operation Arrowhead Thunder also have uncovered more than 1,000 roadside bombs around the provincial capital, Baqubah, where the offensive is being conducted, Iraqi security officials said.
Operation Arrowhead what now?
I thought it was called “Operation Arrowhead Ripper” — but that’s what I get for consulting the MNF-Iraq website. (And the Washington Post, and Reuters, and just about every other news organization on the planet.)
The L.A. Times . . . where the motto is: “Close Enough!”
