Breaking: Al Zarqawi Caught?

Drudge is running a banner right now that reports Al Zarqawi may have been arrested. There is very little to go on right now, but it's from the same paper that broke the news of Saddam Hussein's capture:

Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, whom the US occupation authorities declared to be the "target number one" in Iraq, has been arrested in the city of Baakuba, the Emirate newspaper al-Bayane reported on Tuesday referring to Kurdish sources. Al-Zarqawi, leader of the terrorist group Al-Tawhid Wa'al-Jihad, was recently appointed the director of the Al-Qaeda organisation in Iraq.

Let's hope so. If true, it won't end the violence in Iraq, (that won't happen so long as Iran exists) but the psychological impact on both sides will be profound.

Powerline ties this report in with confirmed information of the capture of his high ranking Zarqawi operatives earlier this week.
