The big story is that US forces may have Osama Bin Laden cornered, but the sub-plot seems just as newsworthy to me.

A Defense Department official said there are two reasons for repositioning parts of Task Force 121: First, most high-value human targets in Iraq, including Saddam Hussein, have been caught or killed. Second, intelligence reports are increasing on the whereabouts of bin Laden, the terror leader behind the September 11 attacks.

"Iraq has become more of a policing problem than a hunt for high-value Iraqis," the defense official said. "Afghanistan is the place where 121 can do more."

The commandos' job in Iraqi is basically done. Isn't that worthy of attention?
