Airstrike kills terror leader al-Zarqawi in Iraq

Recommended Posts

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.

You gotta be fucking kidding me.

 

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

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)

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.

Damn, I thought I saw a tiny gold ring on that very slow-moving hand in that super high quality video of Berg's beheading. The video is so good, and can display skin tones so accurately, I even calibrated my monitor to it.

 

And yeah, that chair is also WHITE!! Crazy!!

 

Beheading is not justified by any means.

you missed it mammero. i don't think beheading or killing

is good in any way.

 

the uninform he;s wearing is the same as abu-ghraib uniforms.

the chairs are standard issue u.s. govt chairs. no doubt about it.

 

if you look at that film frame by frame you will see that there is a gold ring.

find a higher quality version of the video. they are floating around.

i used to have it. also note that there is a voice on the last part that says "thy will be done"

not an arabs voice at all. plain english.

 

don't let shit get in the way of your intellect.

That is some $2.99 molded plastic chair .... I'm fairly sure those are as readily available in most of the wolrd as they are here in the states.

 

I see them in front of every home store, drug store, and food stores I walk into. I sure as hell wouldnt use that as proof of anything !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Not debating your end point, just your use of a plastic chair as anything more than a plastic chair.

 

 

 

 

See that spec in the upper corner of the photo .... thats a UFO. :D

don't be mad because we won't all get on board.

once you start questioning peopole's intellects because they don't agree with you

(especially people who we all know have a good head on their shoulders)

you start to look the you're angry

 

really. who is the nut?

don't be upset because i don't feel the need to investigate every single news story that comes down the pipeline

 

hahaha those chairs? are you kidding? those chairs are probably made in china and exported to a gazillion countries.

Follow the lineage of the Muslim Brotherhood from its roots in admiration of Hitler to its past and present ties to the CIA.

 

I am not questioning your point ... I just found the plastic chair thing funny.

 

And as for why people dont care ... I have two thoughts for you.

--Ignorance is bliss.

-- You dont have kids and a mortage. Most in that boat want to worry about the day to day stuff and trust their leaders to take care of the rest for them. (too bad we cant)

i question people intelligence for obvious reasons.

we just had a muslim tell us that only women can wear

gold. men aren't allowed.

i just posted a video witha white guys ear and army hat

poking into the frame.

i just showed you that abu ghraibs uniforms are the same

as berg's captors put him in. berg did some work there, btw.

i showed you some generic chairs. sure, they are generic. but is it coincidence

that the terrorists ahve the same chairs? maybe. maybe not.

what with all the other evidence, i should be maybe not.

berg just happened to let mussaoui's co-conspirators borrow his computer on a bus at oklahoma state u.? to email? there was no fucking wrieless back then.

how much more does it take?
