Iraqi officials have stated they have credible information that terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been wounded and might even be dead or near death.
If true, this would be great news. Al-Zarqawi is enemy #1, having supplanted Osama bin Laden as the greatest single threat to Americans. He is also the greatest threat to Iraq's stability, having planned and ordered numerous bloody attacks on Iraqi police, military and civilians. His evil knows no bounds.
Appropriately, the U.S. is advising caution. But we can hope. Al-Zarqawi's death would be a significant victory for the U.S. and the Iraqi people.
