    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, was killed in a coalition airstrike near Baquba, jubilant U.S. and Iraqi authorities announced Thursday.
    Al-Zarqawi's killing is a major coup for the embattled coalition forces.
    Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, Gen. George Casey, the highest-ranking U.S. commander in Iraq, and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad announced the development at a news conference.
    "Today, Zarqawi has been killed," al-Maliki said. The announcement was greeted by cheers and applause.
    Khalilzad -- who called al-Zarqawi "the godfather of sectarian killing and terror in Iraq" -- said the death "marks a great success for Iraq and the global war on terror" and calls it a "good omen" for the new Iraqi government.
    "His organization has been responsible for the deaths of thousands of civilians in Iraq and abroad."
    Casey provided details about the incident
    He said al-Zarqawi and a key lieutenant, spiritual advisor Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, were at an isolated safe house at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday.
    "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 Baquba when the airstrike was launched.
    Baquba is a volatile area northeast of Baghdad in Diyala province, a mixed Shiite-Sunni jurisdiction. There have been many roadside bombings and shootings throughout the province and within the week, severed heads were found in fruit boxes there.
    "Iraqi police were first on the scene after the air strike, and elements of Multi-National Division North, arrived shortly thereafter. We have been able to identify al-Zarqawi by fingerprint verification, facial recognition and known scars."
    Al-Maliki indicated that the strike on al-Zarqawi was the "result of cooperation" with the citizenry, saying that authorities many times have asked the citizenry to provide information.
    "This is a message to all those who take violence as a path."
    Khalilzad said the demise of al-Zarqawi won't end the violence in Iraq, but it is "an important step in the right direction." He said "there will be difficult days ahead" but said that "today is a good day."
    CNN's Jamie McIntyre contributed to this report.

    i got a massive grin on my face seeing this.

    i think it might actually have an impact.
    this guy was a ringleader for a lot of the insanity we saw develop..like those beheadings? would that have become a thing to do if he hadn't popped it off?

    anyway fuckim..i'm glad.

    did he happen to get killed on 6/6/6 baghdad time?

    no, this morning. almost 1/2 day ahead. mid morning of the 8th there.

    also: the beheadings, while not all, but some were justified. we'd do the same if we discovered
    an intel worker like nick berg. don't believe me? watch the video again. he was dead when his head was cut off. not enough blood. talk to any pathologist. hell, i've worked in animal pathology labs. lots of blood during beheadings. he was straight intel. as was the other guy.
    perl..daniel perl, i think.

    not in a moralistic way mammero. no way. but look at it this way,
    we would kill a spy if he/she were caught here. maybe not as
    'savagely', but we would kill a spy. we probably do several hundred
    times a year without americans even knowing. look at the prisons
    that the cia is shipping 'terrorists' off to so that they can torture them
    and have no geneva convention rules apply (some of which are gone now.
    bush has given permission to torture now. geneva convention rules
    thrown out the door)

    nick berg was a spy. it's not coincidence that he just happened to run
    into two guys connected with the recently convicted mussaoui. and he happened
    to let them use his laptop to email someone (while on a bus???no wireless in
    2001. how is this possible?) he was also trained and tagged intel.
    do some research. not the conspiracy shit sites. google for news articles.

    i still contend that 'we' would do the same. however shitty you think i am for saying that,
    you still have to realize that it's true. i don't personally agree with torture, beheadings,
    etc. but i am able to understand what happens in the real world.

    i don't buy that danial perl was 'straight intel'
    nope, i've read too many interviews with is wife to buy into that.
    i also don't believe there is a secret identity or conspiracy lurking underneath the cover of every 'news story'

    and no, i don't see their actions as justified.
    beheading nick berg like that, dead, not dead, spy, not a spy, i don't care.
    i saw the video. sick shit, and not justified in my opinion.


    i'm not of the 'eye for an eye' mind
    i don't believe that when someone gets shat upon
    it bestows on him the right to go shit on anyone he wants

    me either. and there is a global conspiracy to cover alot of shit up.
    watch the video again. when berg is being killed audio "thy will be done"
    slowed down there is an obvious white guy in a military hat poking through in 3200
    range. (that is frame)
    here:

    no, not watching that video again

    you can sit around and watch that shit and study it
    i don't feel like vomiting today

    also, go ahead and go nuts on the conspiracy theories.
    i stil think the united states has been to the moon and that a nutty ex marine killed JFK
    these are not topics that i care to spend time mulling over, i'd rather be painting or even talkin fun shit

    also
    my coworker, a muslim from egypt, wears several wedding bands, one of them is gold
    she has rather fair looking skin
    beautiful woman, really

    i hope the whole rest of the country doesn't feel that way.
    i believe that the u.s. has been to the moon, too.
    no idea about jfk. it's fishy. another example of the cia being
    haters, though.

    no one cares to do any research. these people don't even bother to hide
    it anymore. it's out in the news articles, autobiographies, c-span.
    fuck. i can't understand why no one even gives a fuck anymore.
    it's like they've all just decided to lay down and let these crazies stomp
    their boots down on our noses.
