Finally Someone is Asking Questions - Questions Mount Over Failure to Hit Zarqawi's Camp: ">From the Wall Street Journal
"As the toll of mayhem inspired by terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi mounts in Iraq, some former officials and military officers increasingly wonder whether the Bush administration made a mistake months before the start of the war by stopping the military from attacking his camp in the northeastern part of that country."

"But the raid on Mr. Zarqawi didn't take place. Months passed with no approval of the plan from the White House, until word came down just weeks before the March 19, 2003, start of the Iraq war that Mr. Bush had rejected any strike on the camp until after an official outbreak of hostilities with Iraq."

This was probably one of the greatest missed opportunities in the campaign against terrorism and the nobody has pressed this issue.
