Iraq: You Know the Jihadists Are Scared...

When you raid, raid, raid and they issue orders to cease using internet and cell phones.

My guess would be that during a raid based on humint (human intel) we wrapped up some computers that had a lot of email addresses and other important information on them as well as some cell phones with phone numbers on them that the jihadis suspect are being used against them. Reminds me of the Jihad Darwin Awards where, during a raid on a house (where the suspect was gone, but not his cell phone) a cell phone rang and the interpreter answered it. He continued to talk to the insurgent until he had info on where they were. They were subsequently raided and arrested.

Of course, this is neither here nor there since every raid also captures documents and people that offers plenty of information to move on.
