Al-Zarqawi Might Be Dead

The Jerusalem News and ABC News are both reporting that the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq might have been killed in a blast in Mosul. Early reports indicate that coalition forces surrounded a house where suspected terrorists, possibly including al-Zarqawi, were holed up. Rather than face capture a few of the coward terrorists detonated explosives killing themselves. The gunfight and explosions resulted in the deaths of eight terrorists. When asked if al-Zarqawi was among them, the official answered that they were looking into that possibility.

This is very preliminary and there is no telling if the reports are true until they identify the remains. I would caution people that this terrorist has escaped death before. While I pray that he has been killed in a horrible and painful death, I will hold my expressions of joy until they are absolutely certain.

If he is dead this will be a big boost to our side. Despite the moonbat claim that we are encouraging more terrorists to sign up, we have seen evidence that he has been running low on terrorists and has had to use his top guys as homicide bombers. The death of al-Zarqawi would be another nail in the coffin of al-Qaida and would be demoralizing for the cowards that fight in the so-called insurgency.

I recommend you read the short news brief from The Jerusalem News. It contains information about a big story; the possible death of a top terrorist. ABC News gives a quick mention of the possible death and then discusses everything from troop strength to the number of Americans killed. It also mentions abuse of prisoners for good measure. It seems the MSM can not report good news without trying to take the edge off it with their biased reporting.
