U.S. Creates Task Force to Target Al-Zarqawi

U.S. military planners have assembled a special task force charged with finding and neutralizing Jordanian terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, U.S. officials told FOX News. Known as Task Force 626, the operation is assembled along the same lines as that of Task Force 121, which searched months before capturing Saddam Hussein and is still hunting Usama bin Laden. Task Force 626 is smaller than its higher-profile sibling but is similarly made up of CIA operatives, special operations troops from the Navy and the Army, and a handful of investigators. Members of 626 have fanned out in areas ranging from Baghdad to Fallujah and other areas in the contested al Anbar province in search of al-Zarqawi.
