NPR: Zarqawi's Death 'Symbolic'

June 8th, 2006 3:56 PM

The US media continues to downplay the importance of the killing of Zarqawi by US forces. The headling on NPR's website:

Terrorist Zarqawi Is Dead; Iraq's Insurgency Is Not

A symbolic strike by U.S. forces may change little about the situation on the ground.

I'll bet Zarqawi and his aides found the strike a little more than, "symbolic."
