BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Intelligence from cell phone technology helped U.S. forces find and kill Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, said an Iraqi army colonel Friday in an exclusive interview with CNN.

Col. Dhiya Tamimi said he worked with U.S. forces to monitor al-Zarqawi and his associates' cell phones, helping to lead to Wednesday night's airstrike on a safe house near Baquba.

If this is the case, there is the possibility that Al Zarqawi could have been taken out at any time. But, hey, wait until the Bush opinion polls are rock bottom and wham. Here's a dead terorist for you courtesy of President Bush's army.

Nope, things like this don't work as easily over here as you might think. I suspect more of the facts will be made public over the coming weeks. What is ironic is that many of the sunni insurgents are not shedding a tear over this, though their public statements say otherwise. They don't need AQ in Iraq stirring up a civil war...
