It is believed that the headquarters of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been found in Fallujah. If it was found I'd like to see some investigation into how it was not targeted earlier if possible. Hopefully it will tunrn up some information that will lead to his imminent death, preferably by a butterknife beheading.
A mural in the house indicated that it belonged to Zarqawi's organization.
In the house, the soldiers found letters reportedly written by Zarqawi to his lieutenants, medical supplies from the U.S. Agency for International Development and boxes of ammunition from the Chinese and Jordanian armies.
"That part of town is the most dangerous place on earth," said [ Army Maj. David ] Johnson, a historian attached to 1st Infantry Division's Task Force 2-2, which conducted the raid.
Johnson, who was on the raid, said the soldiers discovered at least nine bodies dressed in military fatigues, including a man who was identified as Sudanese.
Iraqi security forces, acting as translators, identified the letters, which were written in black ink on white paper, as correspondence between Zarqawi and his top aides.
The letters reportedly contained requests for financing and weapons, Johnson said.
An underground tunnel ran from a dirt fighting position outside the house to a walled courtyard inside the compound. Soldiers hauled out boxes filled with passports and identification cards.
Dead bodies were scattered among the rubble, the stench coming from craters in the concrete. Soldiers said they found nobody alive on Wednesday.
In any case if he is sending for weapons and financing, hopefully he is on his last leg (literal pun as he only has one leg).
