WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. and Iraqi security forces may have come close to capturing Iraqi al Qaeda leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in the past two weeks and are weakening his support network, Iraq's interior minister said on Thursday



"We are following him," Interior Minister Falah al-Naquib told Pentagon reporters in a videoconference from Baghdad. "I think we missed him twice or three times, but hopefully next time we will be able to capture him."

"I think we arrived a bit late. Maybe we missed him by one hour. ... You know, he is not staying in one place. He is moving from one area to another. So, we will get him -- very soon, hopefully," Naquib added.

They were saying the same thing about Bin Laden though. At one point I remember hearing that they narrowed his location down to like a 2 mile radius. I have no problem with Bush, or this war, but for this little tidbit of news I'll wait to see it before I believe it.
