Hundreds of convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq's Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them, authorities said on Monday.

The deadly raid on the high-security jail happened as Sunni Muslim militants are re-gaining momentum in their insurgency against the Shi'ite-led government that came to power after the U.S. invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives to the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night and blasted their way into the compound, while gunmen attacked guards with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.

Other militants took up positions near the main road, fighting off security reinforcements sent from Baghdad as several militants wearing suicide vests entered the prison on foot to help free the inmates.

Ten policemen and four militants were killed in the ensuing clashes, which continued until Monday morning, when military helicopters arrived, helping to regain control.

By that time, hundreds of inmates had succeeded in fleeing Abu Ghraib, the prison made notorious a decade ago by photographs showing abuse of prisoners by U.S. soldiers.


As they made it to freedom, senior Al Queda operatives stamped each mans index finger with purple ink so he couldn't claim to have escaped twice. I hope they all hummed the Great Escape theme.

This is why Iraq can't have nice stuff.

I'd have a hard time justifying suicide martyrdom in order to bust out some comrades.

Got into an argument this morning with my Rice Krispies. I distinctly heard- "Snap, Crackle, Fuck Him". I don't know which one of them said it, y'know. I was reaching for the artificial sweetener at the time and was not looking directly into the bowl. But I told them, I said, "Well, you can all just sit right there in the milk. Far as I'm concerned you can sit in the milk until I find out which one of you said that." A little mass punishment for my breakfast food. The idea is to turn them against one another. "Just sit in the milk!"

Of course, dopey me ... big punishment! That's what they do anyway. That's their job. Sitting in the milk. You've seen those Rice Krispies floating along. Little beige blisters of air ... riding proudly in the milk. But you can't sink 'em. They oughta use 'em in life jackets; that's where they need 'em. You can't sink Rice Krispies. They float for a long long time. Rice Krispies would float for a week if you leave the dishes out ... I do. Rice Krispies would float until you've gotta knock 'em off the side of the bowl. (chipping sounds) "What're you doing?" "Washing the dishes!" (chipping sounds)

D'ja ever notice that the Rice Krispies highest on the bowl dry first? It's because they're closer to the sun. Isn't that interesting? Yes, there is a little science in the show each and every evening. But those Rice Krispies will float forever-well, you know what they do? They gather together. They gather together in little groups. Little groups of eight, ten, twelve, sometimes fourteen, but always an even number. Little colonies of Rice Krispies. But you can't sink 'em. You try to sink 'em with a spoon, they come up over the side. That's what the fruit is for. Sinking the Rice Krispies. A good size peach will take down eighty or ninety of 'em every time. If I'm really ******* I'll drop a watermelon on 'em!

Meanwhile, in Pakistan...

NYT wrote:
PESHAWAR — Nearly 250 prisoners escaped after a massive attack on one of the main prisons in northwestern Pakistan on Monday night, a senior security official said.

The authorities imposed a curfew in the city of Dera Ismail Khan, in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, after the overnight attack on the 100-year-old central prison there, which had held more than 500 inmates. All roads leading to neighboring restive tribal regions of North and South Waziristan were blocked and a search has begun, officials said, adding that six prisoners had been recaptured.

“The attackers have melted away in the population,” one official said.

Shahidullah Shahid, a spokesman for the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, said it had sent 150 fighters to take part in the attack and that they freed 200 inmates. He said two militant fighters were killed in the attack.
