Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi Terminated!

Stick a fork in Al-Zarqawi - he's DONE!

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - 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.
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said al-Zarqawi was killed along with seven aides Wednesday evening in a remote area 30 miles northeast of Baghdad in the volatile province of Diyala, just east of the provincial capital of Baqouba, al-Maliki said.
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."
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."


Leave it to the AP to try and squash the good news in the last line. But this is a major victory and a testimony to the tenancity of our troops especially our SF guys who tracked him down and pinpointed his location.

This is going to be a major turning point. Zarqawi - no matter how the MSM protrayed him - was the head of the snake of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Also important if confirmed, his second in command was taken out as well. Somewhere Nick Berg and other victims of this scum bucket are shouting Yeah!

Check out Stop the ACLU for more. Also Hotair.

I'll have more infomation as the day goes on.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin with updates, here and here with the press's predictable response.

This is bad month for the Democrats. First they got Dollar Bill Jefferson, then lost the 50th Congressional seat in California, and now this monumental victory in the war on terror. Little wonder why the press is going to try to muck up the party.

Bang of a Summer!
