Al-Zarqawi killed in US air strike

Muderer and chief thug of al-Qaida in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead.

Zarqawi fumbling 

The Associated Press reports: 

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaida's leader in Iraq who led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and kidnappings, has been killed in an air strike, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday, adding that his identity was confirmed by fingerprints and a look at his face. It was a major victory in the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the broader war on terror.

Perhaps surprisingly:

. . . Loud applause broke out among the reporters and soldiers as al-Maliki, flanked by U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and U.S. Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, told a news conference that "al-Zarqawi was eliminated."

Ah, and the predominant media spin continues . . .

. . . But any hopes the Jordanian-born terror leader's death would help stem the violence in Iraq were dimmed hours later when a car bomb exploded in a Baghdad market, killing 12 and wounding 65.

This is great news for all of us, but especially for the Iraqis, the Coalition and the Global War on Terror.
