Zarqawi Mistakingly Released

Wow, talk about incompetence.....but at least were still hot on the trail. Kuna:

Eyewitnesses Thursday reported to the authorities and claimed terrorist leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was seen in Kirkuk this morning, Kirkuk Police Commander Sarhat Qader told reporters.

The official said "still unconfirmed" information suggested Al-Zarqawi was seen in Kirkuk today in a white vehicle.

This after interior ministry investigations showed Al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian, was actually captured and released after security personnel failed to recognize him. The US prize for his head or assisting in his capture stands at USD 10 million.
