A private letter from an “insurgent” reveals cracks in the foundation.
Security forces seized the letter last week in a raid on a safe house that netted arrests and other items. Task Force Freedom, based in Mosul, issued a copy of the letter and a statement about it Saturday.
The letter, from an insurgent named Abu Zayd, who calls himself “emir of Farming reform battalion on the west side,” cited the incompetence of Mosul’s emirs and the disobedience of other people in the network.
It discussed “the noticeable decrease in the attacks carried out by the mujahideen” and said that suicide bombings seem to be of more “quantity and not quality.”
Quantity over quality? I’m not exactly sure what that even means. They want to kill our soliders and innocent people with more style and sophistication?
