White House spiked 2002, 2003 Zarqawi hits to avoid mooting war plans

With Tuesday’s attacks, Abu Musab Zarqawi, a Jordanian militant with ties to al-Qaida, is now blamed for more than 700 terrorist killings in Iraq.

But NBC News has learned that long before the war the Bush administration had several chances to wipe out his terrorist operation and perhaps kill Zarqawi himself — but never pulled the trigger.

This is a seriously old story, of course. But I guess Shrub's plunging poll numbers are the special sauce adding a tiny bit of calcium into osteoporous and brittle spines of the MSM. And so we get yet another story that should, all by itself, spell impeachment, and be acknowledged as a smoking gun.

Any more smoking guns, and the more environmentally sensitive among us are going to have to start requesting that a No Smoking Gun Section of the blogosphere be created.

Oh, never mind. Already exists.
