Arne BS: Bye Bye Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (179* d) RE: BS: Bye Bye Abu Musab al-Zarqawi 09 Jun 06


I'm with Wolfgang on this one. Too bad it didn't happen years ago.

The Dubya maladministration had a chance (see here and here) to go after the Ansar al-Islam camps and Zarqawi (in the northern "no-fly" zone) before the Iraq war. But they didn't do it when they had the chance, in part because Zarqawi and the Ansar folks were part of the purported Saddam/al-Qaeda link, and getting him would remove one of the justifications as to why we "had" to invade Iraq....

Just so we know what the U.S. "plan" was. Yes, now the seventh or so "#3 guy in al-Qaeda" is (apparently) dead. We're "turning [another] corner". And in other news, Nicholas Berg is still dead.

I hope any celebrations are appropriate to the occasion.
