    Zarqawi CAUGHT! Zarqawi RELEASED!

    Report: Iraqi forces mistakenly released Iraq's Al-Qaida leader

    By The Associated Press

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi security forces caught terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi but released him because they didn't realize who he was, the deputy interior minister said, according to CNN.

    The deputy interior minister, Hussein Kamal, said Thursday the Jordanian-born leader of Al-Qaida in Iraq was in custody sometime last year, but he wouldn't provide further details, CNN reported.

    The report could not be confirmed, but a U.S. official said in Washington that American intelligence believed it was plausible. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in compliance with office policy.

    There have been several reports of missed opportunities to capture al-Zarqawi, including an April 28 raid by U.S. forces acting on a tip from local informants that militants reportedly including the terror leader were hiding in a hospital in Ramadi.

    Al-Qaida in Iraq and Iraqi officials also denied reports last month that al-Zarqawi was among those killed in a raid and gunfight in the northern city of Mosul.

    Al-Zarqawi, who has claimed responsibility for several attacks in Iraq along with the kidnappings and beheadings of foreigners, has a $25 million bounty on his head.

    He also drew criticism in his home country of Jordan after his insurgent group claimed responsibility for the deadly November 9 attacks on hotels in Amman.

    Jordan sentenced al-Zarqawi to death in absentia for planning a terror plot that led to the 2002 killing of U.S. aid worker Laurence Foley. He has claimed responsibility for several other plots in Jordan, including a foiled April 2004 chemical attack.

    it's perfectly true, perfectly logical, and happened last year during the buildup to Fallujah in October.

    Zarqawi has a few pics floating around that show him as a nutcase/terrorist "looking" type. He also, when he shaves, slicks his hair back, wears glasses and a button-down shirt, looks like a businessman from Greece or Turkey.
