Zarqawi Win-Win

I wouldn't be surprised if the Coalition hasn't captured Zarqawi along with his laptop.

Think about it. If you reported that you'd captured Zarqawi, there'd be instant howls from all the usual suspects for due process, fair trial, and treatment under the Geneva Convention. The commie Red Cross would be all over you to make sure that you didn't harm hide nor hair. So his organiztion would keep up the slaughter, secure in the knowledge that its ex-boss would not spill the beans.

But if you captured the guy and handed him to the Shias in Iraqi intel, you'd get a torrent of information. And you'd ascribe your subsequent success in busting his organization to the material on the laptop. And he gets his 72 virgins.

Win-Win.
