Zarqawi demoted?

I'm way too beat to write but was just sent this article on Zarqawi from a friend in Jordan. Looks like an interesting enough read. . . .

Media reports during the past week have announced that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi—al-Qaeda's chief in Iraq—has been "replaced" or "demoted" from the leadership of Iraq's Sunni resistance coalition (Daily Star, April 3; al-Bawaba, April 2). The stories have said that al-Zarqawi was removed as "the result of several mistakes he made," including for taking "the liberty of speaking in the name of the Iraqi people" and for "targeting the Islamic states neighboring Iraq, particularly Jordan" [1].

And I had been assuming he was out of the news due to the Bushies' preoccupation with everything Iranian.
