"Husaybah has been cleared and secured." 
Bill Roggio interviews the Brigade Commander about the op.

The Iraqi troops are extremely helpful when it comes to identifying insurgents and al Qaeda. For example, outside of the displaced persons camp set up for citizens of Husaybah, Iraqi troops of the 1/1 picked two Saudis and a Qatari out of the crowd who were dressed as women, then engaged and killed all three. This is but one example of their proficiency.

Time Magazine has more from the excellent Chris Allbritton.

I don't always agree with Chris's slant, but I have immense regard for his contacts, his sensitivity and knowledge of Iraqi and Kurdish culture, and for his commitment to telling the truth in a compelling way. Good for Time for picking him up!
