Maybeso. Not confirmed. Keep an open mind on this, but cautious optimism seems warranted since even Reuters notes the possibility. heh

If true, it won’t end the terrorist attacks on civilians in Iraq, but it will put a dent in them-again, if this proves out.

UPDATE (Monday): Nope. New news says probably NOT. More as things unfold, but this was just a lil premature, looks like.

OTOH, maybe for Christmas Santa will put a Zarqawi in America’s stocking. heh. (I’d rather he deliver some spine and stones to Republican’t Congresscritters, but bagging Zarqawi looks to be more possible… )
