Reports: Abu Musab al Zarqawi is dead

It’s 12:15 AM and reports are coming in on Eugene TV channel 16 stating that Abu Musab al Zarqawi was killed by U.S. Special forces. Nothing on Google news or Fox news on it just yet, so I’m leaving that question mark in the title until I see some more sources come in.

Update: Ian points out (in comments) that MSNBC has also stated that Zarqawi is dead
Update 2: Fox News is now reporting it as well, says it was a bombing attack that got him. Gabrielle also points out CNN‘s headline (story) (it feels so good to have gotten this online before they did!)

Update 3: Reuters UK reports that one of his key aides was captured.

Update 4: 12:55 AM, the Fox News site no longer has the Zarqawi headline. 12:58 Now they’ve replaced it with a story.

Reports are now all over Google News.

  1. Heath says:

    They’d better not try to cut my hazard pay just because he’s gone.

  2. Miles Rost says:

    A second one is gone too…in Israel…

  3. Tyler says:

    Well, clearly the war is won.

  4. Anthony says:

    So great to have that waste of human life no longer breathing.

  5. Gabrielle says:

    Well CNN beat Fox.

  6. Gabrielle says:

    CNN is the same…. come on, where is the story?

  7. Gabrielle says:

    Well, Fox News just listed it as breaking news with no linked story yet.

  8. Gabrielle says:

    Newsource 16 is NBC. Anyone else yet?

  9. Ian says:

    MSNBC is reporting: “U.S. officials: Al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been killed.”
