Oops, We Had Zarqawi But Let Him Go

One, two three, four, five, once we caught the most dangerous man in the Middle East alive.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten - then we let him go again.

Why did we let him go? Because the Iraqis didn't recognise him!

CNN Reports:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi security forces caught the most wanted man in the country last year, but released him because they didn't know who he was, the Iraqi deputy minister of interior said Thursday.

Hussain Kamal confirmed that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- the al Qaeda in Iraq leader who has a $25 million bounty on his head -- was in custody at some point last year, but he wouldn't provide further details.

A U.S. official couldn't confirm the report, but said he wouldn't dismiss it.
Who is this guy, the Scarlett Pimpernell reborn? There must be more photos on wanted posters of him in Iraq than there are corrupt Republicans (a number so large mathematics has invented a new term "cR" to denote it). And more to the point...

Why did it take a whole year before they admitted this crap to the rest of us?
