BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaida leader in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and beheadings of hostages, has been killed in a precision airstrike, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday. It was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.

Al-Zarqawi and seven aides, including spiritual adviser Sheik Abdul Rahman, were killed Wednesday evening in a remote area 30 miles northeast of Baghdad in the volatile province of Diyala, just east of the provincial capital of Baqouba, officials said.

"Al-Zarqawi was eliminated," Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said.

At the White House, President Bush hailed the killing as "a severe blow to al-Qaida and it is a significant victory in the war on terror."

But he cautioned: "We have tough days ahead of us in Iraq that will require the continuing patience of the American people."

Did you see the Iraqi Prime Minister's new conference this morning? It was really great seeing how he could not continue the speech for over a minute due to all the cheering and clapping. At one point the exhuberance touched even him, as he started clapping himself. Just wonderful!

Did not see that, but did see headlines where he IS willing to talk with us about his nuclear program and that oil prices are down ..... but Powerline says liberals are in denial considering comments coming from the moonbats in democraticunderground. No surprise there!!
