  1. BAGHDAD (AP)--Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was expected to make an important announcement at a news conference in Baghdad Thursday, one of his advisers said.

    Al-Maliki adviser Adnan al-Kazimi told The AP he had heard a report that Jordanian terrorism mastermind Abu Musabd al-Zarqawi may have been killed late Wednesday in Baghdad.

    Al-Kazimi said he couldn't confirm the report.

    He said al-Maliki was scheduled to shortly give a news conference along with the top U.S. general in Iraq, Gen. George Casey.

  6. Indeed one man does not an insurgency make; removing the head is one thing, ensuring the power vacuum left behind remains empty is quite another. Still worth a beer or two tonight though.


    Oh... and I hope it hurt like hell.

  8. Oh I do hope so.
     
  9. Don't we all?

    And if the insurgency is as prone to infighting as the government appears to be, any power vacuum might take a while to fill...
