Time Running Out for the Lonely Jihadist?

Is there anyone for whom the date November 2nd is more important than it is for John Kerry and George W. Bush?

Maybe.

Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi.

The Iraqi government wants him dead. The free world wants him dead. Even the Iraqi insurgents want him dead.

Oh yeah, and he’s the reason we went to war in Iraq. It’s tough to keep up with all of them, but W just gave us another update:

“Zarqawi is a terrorist. We are fighting Mr. Zarqawi in Iraq. My opponent seems to think that if we were not fighting in Iraq, he would become a peaceful citizen. Zarqawi would be plotting, planning, ready to strike. He must be defeated there, so we do not face him here.”


Concentration is important!
