375 al Qaeda dirtbags nabbed in Diyala.

It's called "Operation Omens of Prosperity." How rich.

Fascinating report over at Bill Roggio's Long War Journal.

Some tidbits:

Six senior al Qaeda in Iraqi leaders have been captured during the province-wide operation including five members of al Qaeda's provincial shura, or executive council and a woman who recruited female suicide bombers. (Ed. Note: Dear Aafia Siddiqui's ambulance chasing attorney, please be advised of this development and check here for some other Jihadettes of note. Do these homicidal hussies pass your sniff test?)

Operation Omens of Prosperity consists of 3 smaller ops: Sabre Pursuit, Iron Pursuit, Bastogne Pursuit comprised of 30,000 to 50,000 Iraqis bolstered by about 3000 US troops.
