A Small But Significant VictoryLast night the terror leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi was killed by American action, along with his "spiritual leader."
Many observers, including President Bush, downplayed the significance of the action. Yet the importance of the death of this man and much of his staff cannot be underestimated. This was an especially effective leader, and the director of a strategy of quasi-random killing. Without the head, the organization he built will be crippled, at least for a time. Of course, Wretchard at Belmost Club has much more.
