SHELBY ON THE DEATH OF ABU MUSAB AL-ZARQAWI

U. S. Senator Richard C. Shelby (R-AL) today made the following statement about the death of the terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi:

“Al-Zarqawi was the operational brains of the Al Qaeda network in Iraq. He repeatedly encouraged violence against Americans and Iraqi citizens. His death marks the silencing of a brutal terrorist. Our military forces worked tirelessly with their Iraqi counterparts to locate Al-Zarqawi and should be commended for their dedication and efforts. Although the Global War on Terrorism is not over, this is a significant development as we continue to fight this ruthless enemy.”
