Zarqawi escape

Interesting story from the Washington Times.

A U.S. intelligence official disclosed new details on the near capture of Abu Musab Zarqawi, the top terrorist in Iraq, last month. Iraqi and U.S. forces nearly caught the al Qaeda terrorist during a raid on a vehicle traveling in western Baghdad on Feb. 20. By either luck or treachery, Zarqawi avoided capture, but two of his key aides — Abu Qutaybah and Zarqawi's driver — were captured. Intelligence officials were baffled that Zarqawi was not inside the vehicle that was stopped.

He's been extremely lucky on more than one occasion. His days are numbered.
