KHAN BANI SA’AD, Iraq – Working off a tip from a concerned local citizen, coalition forces discovered a massive weapons cache, Oct. 23, during the raid of a home in Sa’ada village, Iraq. The cache marks the largest discovery of explosively formed penetrators ever found in Iraq at one location.

BAGHDAD — October is on course to record the second consecutive decline in U.S. military and Iraqi civilian deaths and Americans commanders say they know why: the U.S. troop increase and an Iraqi groundswell against al-Qaida and Shiite militia extremists.

As bin Laden Speaks Out, Iraqis Parade Against al-Qaeda
The Iraqi people are tired. They’re tired of the death, destruction and fear that has been brought upon them by insurgents who have aligned themselves with al-Qaeda. More and more, they’re standing shoulder to shoulder with American and Coalition Forces to rid their country of this cancer that calls itself al-Qaeda. It’s great to see the people of the region uniting against al-Qaeda and basically thumbing their noses at Osama bin Laden and his thugs. Al-Qaeda made it personal to them, when they assinated one of their own, Sheik Sattar Abu Risha.
