Abu Musab al-Zarqawi Dead?

al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia decapitated? Finally!
Mike Scheuer was a CIA agent for 22 years - six of them as head of the agency's Osama bin Laden unit - until he resigned in 2004.

Scheuer has maintained all along that Bush deliberately passed up repeated opportunities to kill Zarqawi before the un-provoked, unnecessary and largely unilateral invasion and occupation of Iraq (UULUIOI) in March 2003.

Scheuer has stated that during 2002, the Bush Administration received detailed intelligence about Zarqawi's training camp in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Mr Bush had Zarqawi in his sights almost every day for a year before the invasion of Iraq and he didn't shoot because they were wining and dining the French in an effort to get them to assist us in the invasion of Iraq.

Almost every day we sent a package to the White House that had overhead imagery of the house he was staying in. It was a terrorist training camp . . . experimenting with ricin and anthrax . . . any collateral damage there would have been terrorists.
If Scheuer is right, the UULUIOI would not have been necessary to get where we are today!
