Iraqi officials now confirm that top Al Qaeda terrorist there Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been wounded , and there are reports of a succession plan conflict, says Reuters.
The report says that an Islamic Web site initially reported that a trusted deputy had assumed interim command until al-Zarqawi recovers, but the statement was later withdrawn. There have been additional reports of jockeying among various members of the terrorist faction.
See? This is what happens when you don't have an organization based on democratic principles to ensure a smooth and orderly transition of power.
So as the Iraqi Al Qaeda faction descends into chaos, may we wish Mr. al-Zarqawi a long convalescence. A long, long, long, perhaps not entirely successful, convalescence.
