I pray that this is a credible report.

*************************************************************
Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, whom the US occupation authorities declared to be the "target number one" in Iraq, has been arrested in the city of Baakuba, the Emirate newspaper al-Bayane reported on Tuesday referring to Kurdish sources.

Al-Zarqawi, leader of the terrorist group Al-Tawhid Wa'al-Jihad, was recently appointed the director of the Al-Qaeda organisation in Iraq.

The newspaper's correspondent in Baghdad points out that a report on the seizure of the terrorist, on whom the US put a bounty of US$10 million, was also reported by Iraqi Kurdistan radio, which at one time had been the first to announce the arrest of Saddam Hussein.

There have been no official reports about the arrest of the terrorist. Al-Zarqawi, 38, a Jordanian, whose real name is Ahmad al-Khalayleh, aims to turn Iraq into a "new Afghanistan".

According to Arab press data, Al-Tawhid Wa'al-Jihad group has divided Iraq into several emirates. The group's independent subdivisions at a strength of 50 to 500 militants operate in the cities of Al-Falluja, Al-Qaim, Diala, and Samarra.

The personnel of the group is on the whole 1,500-strong and includes Iraqis and citizens of Arab and Islamic countries. There are demolition experts and missilemen among them.

The group has depots of weapons and explosives in various parts of the country. It intends to frustrate the upcoming parliamentary elections that are scheduled for the end of this month. Al-Tawhid Wa'al-Jihad threatens to do away with Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi and members of the interim government.

I wonder why this hasn't been picked up by "reputable" sources yet. I remember a report that came out of a Kuwaiti newspaper in the summer of '03 talking about a huge cashe of WMD that was intercepted, and the story was even mentioned on Rush's show. Then it dried up. I think these little papers in the Arab world are always printing crap before it has been really verified. Having said that, I really hope this is correct.

In that part of the world the press is a lot less cautious.

I doubt anyone like Reuters or the AP would report it short of a confirmation from Centcom like we saw with Saddam Hussein. Of course, they had Hussein for what, right around 24 hours before they let the story out, didn't they?

I'd also bet that if they did have him, they'd want to get him out of the country as soon as possible before saying anything.

Drudge is just reporting that there are reports, he's not trying to give a confirmation.

It does say the Pentagon is not commenting now, however. You'd think they would be likely to issue a denial if nothing had happened but who knows how they would operate in this situation.

If this turns out to be false (which it probably is) its gonna be some hellified disappointment.

What a huge shot of morale it would be for everyone over there on the ground.

URGENT: 'TARGET #1': al-Zarqawi reportedly arrested in Iraq

God I hope this is true.

Slap an orange jump suit on him and stick cameras in his face as we shave an delouse him for trial. PUBLIC humiliation, before we execute his ass. Send a strong message to the region: THIS is what happens when you f*ck with us. :grr:

I hope they did snag this pig****er, although I'd be happier if they just vanished without a word or a trace.

"Where's Al?"
"Dunno"
"Where's Mustaffa?"
"Dunno. He was here yesterday morning. Went out for coffee, didn't come back."
"Where's Mahmoud?"
"Dunno. He was here this morning. Went out for coffee..."
"What's that high pitched noise?"

Last thing you'll ever hear on this side of paradise, bitch.

Hopefully we cut off his crank and flush it down the toilet before he goes to see his virgins.

Hopefully, as others have said, those virgins are actually just goatcheese and slayer clones.

I'd think he'd be deserving of the treatment I worked up for Osama...

Tie the prick over a barrel on a public square, on world wide TV, and let the BIG BOAR Champion from the Iowa State Fair CorkScrew the jerkoff to near death.....then cut his head off with a rusty spoon.

UPDATE //
Tue Jan 04 2005 11:18:47 ET

U.S. military and intelligence sources are denying print and broadcast reports that terrorist Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi has been arrested in Iraq, MSNBC reported Tuesday.

MSNBC said senior U.S. military and intelligence sources told it the reports are not true. A newspaper in the United Arab Emirates, al-Bayane, reported in its Tuesday edition that the Jordanian-born terrorist had been arrested in Baqouba, Iraq. Iraqi Kurdistan radio also reported the arrest of al-Zarqawi.

The U.S. military in December said al-Zarqawi likely is in the Baghdad area.
