This is beyond explanation:
Iraqi police captured and mistakenly released militant leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi last year, the Iraqi deputy interior minister says. Hussein Kamal told reporters that Zarqawi was arrested in the central Iraqi town of Falluja, but was released when nobody recognised him.
What? Seriously? That is almost unbelievable. If nobody recognised al-Zarqawi how does Mr Kamal know this happened? Utterly bizarre.

I'll tell you one thing though. One day after the election? It's clear the someone has explained to the deputy interior minister the importance of timing the release of bad news in order to limit it's political impact. Anyone seen Jo Moore recently?
