U.S. Says Falluja Air Strike Killed Zarqawi Aide
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&ncid=721&e=...


<snip>


A U.S. statement said the "precision strike" in northwest Falluja at 3 a.m. (2000 EDT) had hit a safe house used by the Jordanian militant's al Qaeda-linked movement, adding that a known, but unnamed, Zarqawi associate was present at the time.


Residents said the raid had destroyed one house and damaged three. Hospital staff said they had received no casualties.


Witnesses said U.S. troops shot dead a civilian driver near a checkpoint on a highway to Jordan that runs past Falluja. There was no immediate comment from the U.S. military.


Many families have fled Falluja, fearing a widely expected U.S. offensive designed to bring the city under the interim government's control before elections planned for January.

2. Yep - sure -- Ya bet cha -- that's who was killed
killed the aid of a guy that had a broken leg or missing leg or maybe not. He was killed or maybe not.

And now that ghost -- bad guy (or maybe not) has an aid -- or just an unlucky guy who was killed -- you know the military age male -- and yep he is the aid of the bad guy.

Gotta have a bad guy to focus on -- every war need the really evil bad guy. If he isn't real -- just make him up -- have an actor put on a mask and act really bad. Smoke and mirrors -- Smoke and mirrors.

Is this true -- or another manufactured lie -- just in time for the last week of the election battle??

There are so darn many lies coming from EVERYWHERE -- who knows what is truth, reality or just another lie by the bush crime family???

4. Another "aide or close associate"...that makes 10 million killed so far
there's an unlimited supply of aides and close associates. I think they are called everyone else.

5. The house was empty
"However, a Falluja resident strongly disagreed.

"These four houses that were destroyed were empty. The families left them about a month ago," he said. "There is no one there, no Zarqawi, no militants, no mujahedeen. The plane hit (the houses) at exactly 0300 local time. Thank God there was no one there.""

I guess bombing empty houses and lying is better than bombing houses with little kids inside and lying.

6. Anyone know whether this is the first time we have killed this guy?
I have noticed that Bush likes to announce killing the same guy over and over.
