Another "Senior Al-Qaida operative" captured, sent to Gitmo

Al-Qaeda has more "senior operatives" than any other organization. In fact, they're mostly senior citizens.

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said Friday it has custody of one of al-Qaida's most senior and most experienced operatives, an Iraqi who was attempting to return to his native country when he was captured.

Bryan Whitman, a Pentagon spokesman, said the captive is Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi. He was received by the Pentagon from the CIA, Whitman said, but the spokesman would not say where or when al-Iraqi was captured or by whom.

The Pentagon took custody of him at Guantanamo Bay this week, Whitman said.

The other common attribute

is that we never see these alleged detainees. They're always shipped to a secret prison, where they allegedly confess to every terror plot since the 15th century.
