UPDATE: A Kurdish Iraqi friend sent me the following email from Erbil.

Yes, Zarqawi was killed and sent to the dustbin of history…

Congratulations to all the Iraqi people…

Congratulations to the families of Zarqawi victims, civilians, children, Iraqi army and police…

Congratulations to the families of the fallen brave American GIs and multinational forces helping transfer Iraq from dictatorship to democracy…

Congratulations to all the gallant Peshmerga forces who are actively participating in hunting down Al-Qaeda and Zarqawi's mercenaries…

Congratulations to all freedom and peace lovers all over the world…

To hell Mr. Zarqawi …

May Bin Laden be next…Amen…
