Extra Aqua Vitae Nulla Salus



Hard working reporters fired for drinking.

Bush still a dick.

"Pegleg" still on the loose. (Worse yet, the manner of his escape suggests two legs.)

Few things:

(1) This guy has an almost MacGuyver-like ability to escape. When's the last time you jumped out of a moving car? Maybe it'd hurt less with only one leg to break?

(2) On the question of oneVStwo legs, I _want_ to believe one. With 80,000 euros lieing around as typical, I'd hope he could afford top of the line protheses.

(3) Even if Zarqawi is as important a 'mastermind' as the US military would have us believe, 99% of his energies must now be commited to avoiding capture, a la Hussein circa early December 2003.

(4) I don't suppose his capture would hurt the moral of fellow insurgents, as they probably see him as more a means to an end (balls-of-iron workhorse to create a Baathist pan-Arabic superstate) rather than an end to the means (king of some future Baathist pan-Arabic superstate).

Finding the computer, said the official, "was a seminal event." It had "a very big hard drive," the official said, and recent pictures of Zarqawi. The official said Zarqawi's driver and a bodyguard were taken into custody.

The senior military official said that they have since learned Zarqawi jumped out of the vehicle when it passed beneath an overpass, presumably to avoid detection from the air, and hid there before running to a safe house in Ramadi.
