Zarqawi Finds His 72-Year-Old Virgin


Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the mastermind behind hundreds of bombings, kidnappings and beheadings in Iraq, was killed Wednesday evening by an airstrike northwest of Baghdad, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday.

Zarqawi, a Jordanian-born high-school dropout whose leadership of the insurgent group al-Qaeda in Iraq made him the most wanted man in the country, was killed along with seven aides near the city of Baqubah, the officials said.

This is great news for the US and better news for Iraq. Zarqawi qualified as one of the most evil people on earth, and his passing will make it easier to quell the insurgency.

Countdown to liberal bloggers finding the timing of this curious: 3,2,1....

Update: Most of the liberal bloggers have been fairly sensible on this. But some of their commenters are not:

Bush propagandists set this guy up as second on the ladder of evil to You Know Who By the Way Where Is He Anyway? so they could make a big deal out of getting him if they ever managed to do that and give a temporary boost to Junior's ratings. He never has been nearly so important in the Iraqi resistance as the propaganda ministry wanted everyone to think he was.

CBS News reported Monday that government officials are now predicting a major terror attack in the US "sometime in the next 6 months." Say, isn't there an election in about 6 months? Right on time.

Watch the MSM turn this into V-J Day, the Santino 'Sonny' Corleone wipout, and the conclusion of American Idol combined.

Keeping a daily chart of US fatalities in the Iraq quagmire tends to make one suspicious of celebratory "turning points".

It is, of course, nice to see a thug taken out, but I doubt it'll have any noticeable effect on the flow of events, except in shallow and fleeting perception of the MSM.

I'm sure Ed gets a great deal of pleasure from his daily chart of US fatalities.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
