The big news today is that the al-Qaida thug who has been leading the terrorists in Iraq has been killed by a U.S. air strike. Go Air Force! The body of Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been identified by fingerprints and distinguishing body marks. And in even better news, this air strike was a two-fer as it killed Sheik Abdul Rahman at the same time.
I view the death of people with sadness, even the death killers like al-Zarqawi and Saddam’s sons, Odai and Qusai Hussein. The chance to turn their lives around is now gone, but so is the opportunity for additional murders and mayhem. And I can accept that. Michelle Malkin has a good round-up of the current news, and I fully expect this to be top news on all the talk and news shows today.
So, who will spot the first “Yeah, but where’s Osama?” sentence in any of the main stream media’s reporting today?
