AQI can run but not hide

Army Maj. Gen. Mark Hertling, commander of Multinational Division North, briefed Pentagon reporters from Iraq.
Operation Iron Harvest, part of the larger countrywide Operation Phantom Phoenix launched just before Christmas, has pounded parts of four northern provinces that have, for the most part, afforded the group safe haven, Hertling said. The operation’s main effort has been in Diyala, specifically the area called the “breadbasket,” near Muqdadiyah, in eastern Diyala province, although it includes Multinational Division North’s other provinces of Salahuddin, Ninevah, and Tamim.

However AQI is capable of launching suicide attacks against soft targets and f-ing schools.
