In a press release from the Multi—National Force Iraq dated December 23, we learn that two terrorists were captured recently by coalition forces during raids on suspected safe houses near Mosul.
One of them, Muhammad 'Amir Husayn Mar'I al—Sufi, known as Abu Naba, was the Ansar al—Sunna media emir in Mosul. Ansar al—Sunna is a terrorist group allied with Ansar al Islam and has close ties to Zarqawi. As the 'media emir' Abu Nada was in charge of producing a range of propoganda items: fliers and compact discs about terrorist operations, jihad boilerplate and prayers, along with messages telling citizens not to vote. 'He also facilitated videos of attacks on Iraqi and coalition forces,' the press release states, 'to be posted on the internet. He purchased cameras for terrorists to film violent acts, including bombings, kidnappings and executions.
The only question remaining is: was Abu Naba a stringer for the New York Times?
