"without causing collateral damage to other Iraqi civilians"
" "The most wanted man in Iraq died in a U.S. airstrike Wednesday evening when two 500-pound bombs slammed into a safe house near Baquba, according to U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Bill Caldwell."Last night was the first time that we have had definitive, unquestionable information as to exactly where [al-Zarqawi] was located, knowing that we could strike that target without causing collateral damage to other Iraqi civilians and personnel in the area," Caldwell said." (Watch bombing run that killed al-Zarqawi -- 2:00) Kindly see this video directly from this CNN news article: 'Painstaking' operation led to al-Zarqawi June 8, 2006
"Following the attack on the safe house, Iraqi forces were the first on the scene, Caldwell said."

Islam Memo (translation): " The Islam Memo correspondent in Ba'qoubah managed to enter the area of Hibhib on Thursday afternoon after the travel embargo to it was lifted by the occupation forces.
The correspondent reported from the area around the house in which Zarqawi was killed. Eye witnesses said that the occupation forces did fire two rockets at the house which rattled the whole city.
More than 50 nearby homes were completely destroyed. Homes at 500 meters away suffered heavily, especially due to the effects of the second bomb.
The Iraqi police who first arrived at the scene removed many charred bodies from the rubble as the bombardment melted even the iron beams of the roof of the house and in its windows.
"How is it that Zarqawi's body remained intact as if he died in his bed?" asked one Iraqi resident".
Awaiting report from CNN and FOX on the number of those that the Americans are concerned about :"without causing collateral damage to other Iraqi civilians and personnel in the area".
