Al Zarqawi is dead (at least those are the initial reports. Link: BBC NEWS | Middle East | Zarqawi dead, say Iraqi reports.
Good. I wonder if the potential openings in the row with Iran over nukes has anything to do with Zarqawi's death...I've always figured that Iran's intelligence services could probably find and kill him in a matter of days, if not hours were they so inclined. Perhaps the positive overtures from our side provided the motive...if true, how much more to get bin Laden? I think we (US) are certainly strange bedfellows with Iran when it comes to Iraq, but I think we are ironically bound with some common interests.
