WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: We've got another important development that's breaking right now at the Pentagon. And once again, let's go to our senior Pentagon correspondent, Jamie McIntyre -- Jamie.
JAMIE MCINTYRE, CNN SENIOR PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well, Wolf, a word of yet another capture in Iraq. This one a U.S. commando raid has nabbed a man that the U.S. says was head of Iraqi intelligence, and specifically the American desk -- chief of the Iraqi intelligence service American desk.

What makes him significant, his name is Salam Said Kallahf (ph) al-Jumayli, is that he's believed to have knowledge of Iraqis spying for Iraq in the United States. And the U.S. launched a Special Operations raid to capture him. They said they managed to take him into custody inflicting one enemy casualty but taking no casualties on the U.S. side.
