ABC News is reporting that Abu Musab Al Zarqaw has been blown up in a US bombing raid. DING-DONG, THE WITCH IS DEAD! I know it's not Christian to celebrate another human's death, but God forgive me, I'm happy about this! For those who don't know, he trained with the Taliban, and found refuge in Saddam's Iraq, after we invaded Afghanistan. He was treated at a hospital under Saddam's late son's control, which is something that still seems to escape the notice of those who claim Saddam had no links to terrorists. This has deprived the terrorists of a vital leader and figurehead. Here's hoping Osama meets a similar fate!
UPDATE: It is also reported that he lived through the bombing, and was handed over to Iraqi authorities, and then he died. Well, that's interesting. ABC keeps repeating that his "spiritual advisor" was also killed in this attack. Sympathetic, or just pathetic?
UPDATE II: 06/09/06 CNN and FOX are reporting that Zarqawi lived through the initial bomb strike as if it was a new development. Wolf Blitzer called it "a startling new development." PUH-LEEZE! What actually happened was that the US military formally acknowledged it on Friday, but I reported it from ABC NEWS in my first update, around 4 AM Thursday, an hour or so after my original post! Who says bloggers are more inaccurate than the "drive-by" media?
DEATH TO THE ENEMIES OF FREEDOM!
-and that includes the old "drive-by" MSM!
