I've heard on and off all day that Zarqawi lived for a few minutes before he went to his reward.  The best quote I heard was from Mort Kondracke on that:

"I'm glad he lived for just a while so he knew who it was that got him before he went to hell."

Rose: [disgusted] Oh, look at what the cat dragged in: "The Oncoming Storm."

But his attacks against Jordanians and other Muslims angered the cousin.  And also a lot of other people in the Middle East.

Exactly. If he had stuck to just attacking the US and coalition forces...he'd still be alive today. Because Jordan and others involved in finding him wouldn't have helped the US find him.

That plus Zarquawi was an egotist. He wanted people to know he did it and he wanted to be seen...he was more hands on than Bin Laden.

Why do you think we haven't found Bin laden yet. Cause the boy is keeping a very low profile. He's not attacking muslims. So people over there have no reason to betray him.

ABC News
actually had a report on this tonight.

Quote

Tracking down Osama bin Laden has proven tougher than getting to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi because the top al-Qaida leader keeps a lower profile, surrounds himself with far more faithful followers and has more places to hide, intelligence experts say.

The mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks avoids using satellite phones and the Internet. He is believed to be holed up along Pakistan's border with Afghan in rugged, remote terrain, protected by loyal tribesmen.

Al-Zarqawi was killed Wednesday just 30 miles from the Iraqi capital. In late April, he was featured in a videotape firing a machine gun in the desert and talking to insurgents.

"Osama bin Laden is a far more difficult leader of al-Qaida to be caught as compared to al-Zarqawi," said Talat Masood, a retired Pakistan army general. "Firstly, bin Laden is not involved in day-to-day operations and we believe that he enjoys the support of much more loyal people."

In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change. --Thich Nhat Hanh
