Al-Zarqawi Dead!

Break from vacation just long enough to comment on the demise of the terrorist who killed Americans, Iraqs of all parties, and anyone else who happened to get in his way.

The killer had escaped by the skin of his teeth several times, and taunted the US and others.

While his death certainly does not end the terrorist activity in Iraq, it also does not bode well for the Al Qaeda in Iraq. Citizen tips led to the killing of this evil person. The tips flowed from citizen apparently through Iraqi security forces and then a combined force bombed the terrorist and seven of his lieutenants.

I suspect the death of the killer of many will impact the terrorists more than is being admitted by our sources. The reason is simply the elimination of their leader who had appeared to be impervious to capture/death. With the Iraqi people offering them up for capture or death the end game for major terrorist activity may well be afoot.
