Zarqawi Arrested?

Bill at INDC Journal has a lead... he is skeptical, and so am I.

Some in the Russian press are reporting that he was arrested in Baakuba.

"Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, whom the US occupation authorities declared to be the "target number one" in Iraq, has been arrested in the city of Baakuba, the Emirate newspaper al-Bayane reported on Tuesday referring to Kurdish sources.
The newspaper's correspondent in Baghdad points out that a report on the seizure of the terrorist, on whom the US put a bounty of US$10 million, was also reported by Iraqi Kurdistan radio, which at one time had been the first to announce the arrest of Saddam Hussein.

We'll see.

UPDATE: Power Line mentions the Zarqawi arrest rumor in connection with other arrest rumors. UPI has released a short blurb reporting the rumor, and the military is denying that it has Zarqawi.

UPDATE II: The Russian report has now shown up in China. HAT TIP: Larry Kudlow
