Iraq: Army has al-Zarqawi's cameraman

Sat Oct 28, 5:16 PM ET

Iraq's Defense Ministry said Saturday that the Iraqi army captured a man thought to be the personal cameraman for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the slain leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, the country's most feared terrorist group.

Spokesman Mohammed al-Askari told al-Iraqiyah television that Khalid al-Hayani was detained in Diyala province, northeast of Baghdad.

He declined to say when the capture occurred or give al-Hayani's nationality, saying that could hinder future operations against terrorists. He said videotapes and documents were found in al-Hayani's possession but did not describe their contents.

The Jordanian-born al-Zarqawi, who was killed by a U.S. airstrike June 7 in Diyala, had appeared in several videos posted on militant Internet sites.

One clip often played on Middle Eastern TV news channels showed him clad in black and firing a machine gun. An earlier one purported to show al-Zarqawi with his face covered, speaking to the camera before he slit the throat of a Western hostage.

It says a lot about what a buttplug he was that he actually had a personal cameraman...

Too bad we couldn't use his own camera to film his execution and post it on the internet.

Get all the info he has and then shoot him in the head.
