And then there were 36

Damn, we got ourselves yet *ANOTHER* top aide to terrorist leader al-Zarqawi in Iraq! We got his barber, we got his shoe-shine boy, I bet al-Zarqawi is gonna be reduced to promoting the street vendor who sold him dates last week to his new top aide!

That makes, err... 36 top aides that we've killed so far, reading like a who's who of, well, the service industry.

What next, we grab Zarqawi's cobbler then proudly announce we've cut the head off of the Zarqawi organization?! Before you know it, a third of Iraq will be a top aide to Zarqawi!

Hold it -- maybe that's already the case...

  1. Hey Badtux,

    The U.S. military official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, said there was no reason to doubt the Iraqis' figures but that American officials hadn't been able to verify them.

    Oh yeah, we just can't verify them - like we can't verify a whole lotta things, these days. Wouldn't want any bad information to get in the news - like fer instance, WMD's?

    ...and I'm sure that subject is soooo sensitive (I thought it was just the dems that were being accused of sensitivity) is sensitivity another code word for "classified - you really don't want to know"?
