Peter Brookes writes that perhaps the most intriguing detail of Zarqawi’s demise is that the end “came from tips given by associates”:

This sort of “actionable intelligence” is critical in prosecuting an insurgency and, perhaps, most importantly shows significant discord in al Qaeda’s ranks.

Good.
