Another act in Bush's tragedy of errors

Crooked Timber asks why not Zarqawi? And here is more on the matter.

So, the essential question is, if Bush knew that Zarqawi was operating freely in northern Iraq, why didn't we just take him out. The Pentagon had the plans drawn up, and he was under no-fly zone territory. One smart bomb, (assuming it hadn't gone dumb) could have rid the world of Zarqawi's scourge forever. However, the camp wasn't bombed until hostilities began during the Iraq war.

All together now (Sen. Luger included): Incompetence.

Update 10:55pm: Apostropher tells me this is old news.
