As the struggle for Iraq continues, terrorists have not let up in their battle against coalition forces. But, this week they suffered a decapitating blow to their leadership: A pair of precision guided bombs ended the bloody reign of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Head of Al Qaeda in Iraq, this butcher was responsible for killing thousands of innocent people.
But the U.S. air strike was only the end game in this coalition victory. The intelligence that led to Zarqawi's death came from many sources, including some in Iraq and neighboring Jordan where the 39 year-old terrorist was born.
Since the war began, “War Stories with Oliver North” has returned to Iraq seven times compiling hundreds of hours of tape. In this riveting episode you will witness the manhunts for Iraq’s most wanted terrorists. Since, December 2003, when the once powerful Saddam Hussein was pulled from his hole in the ground, there have been hundreds of lightning fast raids, by day and night, across the desert.
As you will see, our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines continue to sacrifice and die in the pursuit of terrorists like Zarqawi. This is a story about our heroic troops serving Iraq’s continuing struggle for democracy.
