Zarqawi going from brush pile to brush pile just like a wet rat

It’s just a matter of time for head-chopping holy warrior Abu Musab Zarqawi, who was nearly captured by Marines recently. Abu Musab Zarqawi, the most-wanted terrorist in Iraq, is on the run in an undeveloped western border region where he was nearly caught in recent weeks, a U.S. Marine commander says.

“Zarqawi Had Close Call with Marines. "He's going from brush pile to brush pile just like a wet rat,” said Lt. Gen. John F. Sattler, whose 1st Marine Expeditionary Force is back home at Camp Pendleton, Calif., after months of intense combat in Anbar province. (Photo credit : News on Terror)

“He’s going from brush pile to brush pile just like a wet rat,” said Lt. Gen. John F. Sattler, whose 1st Marine Expeditionary Force is back home at Camp Pendleton, Calif., after months of intense combat in Anbar province. “I believe he possibly slid back into the Anbar area, possibly the hinterlands.”

Gen. Sattler, who commanded operations in the region, said in an interview with The Washington Times that the U.S.-led coalition has forced Zarqawi to work “independently” by killing or capturing his first- and second-string lieutenants.

Zarqawi fled the Anbar region before his base in Fallujah was captured by a Marine-Army force in November. He operated in northern Iraq until he was pressed back to western Iraq, but this time in isolated frontier country.

“He can’t use cell phones,” Gen. Sattler said of the Jordanian-born terrorist, whose capture promises a $25 million reward. “He can’t use any type of Internet. He doesn’t know who he can trust.”

But then if Zaraqawi seeks refuge in Pakistanm, he may eb able to elude capture with the active help of Pakistan's Military Secret Service, the ISI (Inter Services Intelligence) as have Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri.
