“Ladies and Gentlemen, Coalition forces killed al-Qaida terrorist leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi and one of his key lieutenants, spiritual advisor Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, yesterday, June 7, at 6:15 p.m. in an air strike against an identified, isolated safe house.
“Tips and intelligence from Iraqi senior leaders from his network led forces to al-Zarqawi and some of his associates who were conducting a meeting approximately eight kilometers north of Baqubah when the air strike was launched.
What no one is yet talking about is what else they gathered from the safe house. Clearly they've already been there since the strike, if they're talking about "facial recognition" and fingerprints.
Could this lead to a domino effect and the capture of the insurgency's leadership?
The next few days will be critical in determining how the insurgents respond to being headless. This is a major test for the 'scene'-ness of al Qaeda in Iraq.
