Welcome back from inter-planetary travel if you haven 't heard about the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, terrorist leader who roiled things up in Iraq for the last two and half years. Virtually every news medium has trumpeted the murder of the man who seemingly was second only in the effort to tear Iraq apart to President George W. Bush. Perhaps this subtle gloating is an appropriate response to the former leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Yet, considering the upcoming Senate investigation into the Haditha massacre and a crisis in faith by the American people over Bush 's handling of the war, al-Zarqawi 's death seems awfully convenient.
