United States forces have confirmed the death of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi!!

"“Ladies and Gentlemen, Coalition Forces killed al-Qaida terrorist leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi and one of his key lieutenants, spiritual advisor Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, yesterday, June 7, at 6:15 p.m. in an air strike against an identified, isolated safe house." - Centcom

Some reactions from the left (via Kos):
"Bush's idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?" - Johann
"I suppose Osama will be caught in October,...just in time for the November elections." - Really Liberal Democrat
(via Think Progress)
"like, this will make any difference. Abu Ghraib, Fallujah, & Haditha created 10,000 replacements." - Ho Chi Mihn

Hah, and this is great, from The Storms Blog,
"Folks at Think Progress can’t find it within themselves to think this is any good news at all. We can see they really do support our troops."

And for those who say Abu is was not a big player, do I have to remind you of the videos and such where he called on the death of American troops, as well as people who are simply in the opposing religious sect?
