Attention, NSA: Spy on Me

Because I seem to know what the leaders of Iraq don't--the identity and whereabouts, at least for part of last year, of the supposedly most-wanted terrorist leader in that country. Zarqawi was in Fallujah. At least that's the only conclusion to be drawn from this story, which has enjoyed far more play in other countries than in this one, a peculiarity especially in view of the subject of the President's major Sunday-night speech--the good news about Iraq--and the rising debate about NSA spying on American citizens. Might those resources be better devoted to finding, capturing, and, crucially, identifying, the number-one guy on our most-wanted list? Might that not be a question worth asking right about now?
