AQ in Iraq Leader Admits to 4,000 Dead Terrorists

From the Associated Press:
The new leader of al-Qaida in Iraq said in an audio message posted on a Web site Thursday that more than 4,000 foreign insurgent fighters have been killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. It was believed to be the first major statement from insurgents in Iraq about their losses.
"The blood has been spilled in Iraq of more than 4,000 foreigners who came to fight," said the man, who identified himself as Abu Hamza al- Muhajir _ also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri _ the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. The voice could not be independently identified.
If this putz admits to 4,000 dead jihadis, count on the real figure being much higher.

In any case, that's a minimum of 4,000 babyhunters who won't be coming to Manhattan to meet Allah.
