The Face of Al-Baghdadi?
Mug shot of 'Abu Omar al-Baghdadi '
The Iraqi government released this picture today of the man it arrested last week and who the government still insists is Abu Omar al-Baghdadi. The Prime Minister's officer also released a statement today confirming that the arrested man is al-Baghdadi.
Oddly enough, neither the government spokesmen or Maliki's office offered a real name for the suspect. Earlier accounts had suggested that the arrested man's name is Ahmed al-Majma'i, but that could have been the name on a fake ID that he was carrying on him when arrested, if that is indeed the case.
I haven't spotted anything yet on jihadist websites either identifying or dismissing the man in the photo as al-Baghdadi.
