One of the great side effects of al Abu Musab Zarqawi's recent vaporization (other than the fact that right about now he's realizing that his 17 virgins are actually large thorny-cocked men named "Bubba") is that it allows us to once again stick it to Power Line.
Back in January of 2005, Power Line grasped at some straws:
It seems pretty clear that one of two things is happening: either 1) the Iraqi authorities have steadily rolled up Zarqawi's network to the point where they are on the doorstep of catching the master terrorist himself; or 2) rumors that Zarqawi himself was caught several weeks ago are true, and the reason why his closest associates are now being captured is that Zarqawi is squealing on his friends.
Don't be shocked if the Iraqi government makes a blockbuster announcement on the eve of Sunday's election.
Yes, "seems pretty clear" indeed.
Well, once again KAR has demonstrated its superiority to Power Line. Time Magazine can reach us at koolaidreport (at) yahoo (dot) com.
