French Arrest Iraq-bound Islamists

From The Daily Star
PARIS: Four more people were detained in Paris Wednesday by anti-terrorist agents looking into the recruitment of Islamic extremists to join the insurgency in Iraq, bringing to 11 the number of arrests this week.
Good job on the part of French authorities to identify and arrest these people. Also, this is more evidence that invading Iraq has shifted the battlefield from Manhattan to the middle east. The more Islamists who travel there and die facing Coalition troops, the fewer will be available for mischief in the West.
