The One That Got Away

Via AFP: US forces recently came close to capturing Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq and they have found his laptop computer and seized some of his money.

I don’t get it – why is it so hard to get this guy? I know Osama is in rugged mountains or something, and that has its challenges, but Zarqawi…this guy has been everywhere. In and out of Baghdad, in Ramadi. In cities for goodnessake. Could it be that we’re trying too hard to do the right ‘political’ thing and allow Iraqis to catch him? That’d make good TV wouldn’t it?

I hope not.
