al-Zarqawi: Dead as a Doornail

Best news I've heard in a while:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaida leader in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and beheadings of hostages, has been killed in a precision airstrike, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday. It was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.

Al-Zarqawi and seven aides were killed 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, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said.

I also heard on the radio that he didn't die right away, but died as a result of injuries sustained in the attack. If that's true, then the news is even better.

Of course, al-Qaeda is already calling his death a martyrdom and that it only strengthens their resolve to continue the fight. No surprise there.

I'm only waiting, though, for the naysayers on the left to cheapen this victory with continued discussion of Haditha and questioning why, if we could get al-Zarqawi, can't we get Osama bin Laden?

To crudely quote others...

We should say only good things about the dead.

He's dead.

But, but will this help the President on immigration?
