Kidnapped Iraqi Sheiks Freed

The 11 kidnapped sheiks that I wrote about on Monday have been freed.

From The Long War Journal

Just 24 hours after the capture of 11 Sunni and Shia tribal leaders in northern Baghdad, the Iraqi Army has freed eight of the sheikhs. Meanwhile, Multinational Forces Iraq has identified the Mahdi Army commander responsible for the kidnappings and has begun to name other Mahdi Army leaders as being involved in criminal and insurgent activity.
