Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, has been killed; and this time it seems that they really did get their man.

It seems an appropriate time to re-use The Sun's old Falklands War headline: Gotcha.

I think it's important to note this quote from the story-

"Today Zarqawi has been terminated," Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki announced at a televised news conference with the top U.S. commander in Iraq, General George Casey, prompting applause and cheering from Iraqi journalists.

I wonder if any US journalists will be similarly pleased?
