Izzy the lizard

Damn. We were soooo dissapointed when we found out that it wasn't really Izzat Ibahim Al-Dori that was captured in Al-Hawija near Kirkuk last tuesday.

We were hearing news all day about a major operation by US forces in that area against militants. But of course GC member Muwaffaq Al-Rubay'i had to blabber knowingly to the BBC about his 'inside info' that the Izzat was either captured or killed. He was excitedely talking about 'the big fish'. I was almost concluding that they were probably closing on Satan's gay lover himself and my expectations went sky-high, but I was also willing to settle on Izzy just in case.

After a couple hours of pacing nervously in front of the tv it was all bluntly denied by a military spokesman and I went all gloomy. They had succeeded in arresting his private secretary General Saad with a huge stash of US dollars, but it did seem there was enough evidence that Al-Dori had visited the area.

An IP official from Kirkuk said that the raids also resulted in capturing several top figures from the former regime's special security and Mukhabarrat.

Now I was a bit critical of US intelligence reports that Al-Dori is behind financing and coordinating attacks against Americans in the area, and many Iraqis agree with me on this issue. Let's face it, the man's medical condition has deteriorated significantly over the last two years or so. We used to hear that he needed a complete blood transfusion every six months or so to survive (don't know the exact disease), and for anyone with such a debilitating condition it would be too much to be always on the move as he requires continous medical care. However his oldest son Ahmed may have something to do with the attacks as we have been hearing.

Anyway after capturing his own private doctor and private secretary, not to mention his most favoured wife and daughter, I tend to believe that he will surrender sooner or later or that he will be forced to do so to save his life. But it would be ridiculous to assume that if Izzat is detained the 'resistance' will have much to lose. It's the Big Fish who we should be after in the first place.
