Zarqawi Arrested ?

A few minor news sources are reporting that Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, may have been captured. Iraqi Kurdistan radio is one of those reporting the capture. They were one of the first to report Saddam's capture when it happened, which gives me a little hope that this story is actually true. Full story here
I'm not getting my hopes too high that Zarqawi has been captured, seeing as there have been a couple of false reports of al-Qaida members being captured before. So I'm going to wait and see if this story is confirmed before I celebrate, but it would be pretty big news.

His capture won't cure all of Iraq's problems, but it could be another small step in the right direction. Taking someone out of the picture who wants to turn Iraq into a "new Afghanistan" can't be a bad thing. What kind of idiot thinks that's a good idea anyway? I think Zarqawi needs a better set of goals.
