ZARQAWI UPDATE….AP is reporting that Iraqi forces think they’re close to capturing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi:

Authorities in Iraq have arrested three close associates of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, officials said Friday, claiming to be close to capturing the al-Qaida-linked terror mastermind himself two days ahead of historic elections that extremists have vowed to subvert.

….Asked by reporters if authorities were close to arresting al-Zarqawi himself, [Deputy Prime Minister Barham] Saleh replied: “We are getting close to finishing off al-Zarqawi and we will get rid of him.”

We’ve heard this before from the Iraqis, and it hasn’t been true yet. Still, here’s hoping it pans out this time.
