see the MNF-I press release here...

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaida's leader in Iraq who led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and kidnappings, has been killed in an air strike, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday, adding his identity was confirmed by fingerprints and a first-hand look at his face. It was a major victory in the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the broader war on terror.

This is an absolutely great day for freedom and for the world.

A great day indeed! Good job to all the forces involved, and congratulations on taking out one of the nasty ones. Good for the Iraqis, too!

I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I wanted to pass on my compliments for how well the PAO community handled the Zarqawi death and aftermath. You guys did great on this one.
