As for the death of Zarqawi being insignificant, as was suggested earlier, it looks like the good news is even better than first thought. -EY

Post-al-Zarqawi Raids Kill 104 Insurgents

Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- American and Iraqi forces have carried out 452 raids since last week's killing of terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and 104 insurgents were killed during those actions, the U.S. military said Thursday.

Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, said the raids were carried out nationwide and led to the discovery of 28 significant arms caches.

He said 255 of the raids were joint operations, while 143 were carried out by Iraqi forces alone. The raids also resulted in the captures of 759 "anti-Iraqi elements."


Iraq's national security adviser, Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, said the killing of Zarqawi marked the "beginning of the end" of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

He said documents seized after the raid that killed Zarqawi had given coalition forces "the upper hand".
