Another One Bites the Dust

Good news out of Iraq, via this BBC report:
United States officials say Iraqi forces have killed a senior aide to the militant leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Officials said Abu Zubair was shot dead in the northern city of Mosul, in an ambush set by Iraqi forces. He had been wanted for his alleged role in several attacks, including a attack on a police station in Mosul last month, which killed five policemen.

Yes, it's good news whenever any of Zarqawi's trolls can no longer slaughter women and children. The good news in this case is not so much who was taken out as it is who took him out. The Iraqi forces are picking up the plow of freedom and weeding their land.
