Is Zarqawi dead?

Various links here. I’ll be following Iraq the Model. If you see anything interesting on this astonishing story, put it in the comments below and we’ll transfer to the Pajamas… er… OSM site.

JUST A THEORY: If Zarqawi has been killed… and the AP is correct that there was a tip on his whereabouts… that tip could have come from inside Al Qaeda itself or from people friendly to it. After the Amman hotel horrors, Zarqawi was the blodthirsty poster boy for the Al Qaeda Psychopath. If you believe the Zawahiri letter, they didn’t need publicity like this. He had to go.

UPDATE: Ah, well…
