More lives than Wile E. Coyote

By Libby

The big buzz yesterday was Iraq's announcement of the alleged capture of the AQI's number one man. The Pentagon responds with WTF?
The U.S. military in Iraq denied widespread reports Friday that trumpeted the capture of a top Iraqi insurgent leader.
Not unlike the proverbial number three AQ guy that gets captured or killed all over the world with great regularity, Mr. Number One in Iraq has the same unlimited capacity to come back as the hapless Looney Tunes coyote.

Al-Masri , called "the Egyptian" and also known as Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, took the reins of Iraq's al Qaeda offshoot in June 2006, after a U.S. missile strike killed his predecessor, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Since then, Iraqi officials have reported his death three times, his capture twice and a mortal wounding once.
Somewhere in New Mexico, a roadrunner is laughing. Meanwhile, stock prices at Acme Corp have surged.

Not that it's terribly important, but its, "Wile E. Coyote".

To the contrary. It's most important to get the name right. Thanks for the catch. I knew it was wrong and forgot to change it in my haste and foggy mindframe yesterday.

Sorry, but that's trademarked.
