Troops find Al-Zarqawi hideout with "Al Qaeda" sign out front

US GIs going through the beleagured Iraqi city of Fallujah happened upon what is believed to be a training center for the terrorist group headed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- the very group that started the latest beheading craze (starting with Nick Berg).

And how did the troops know it was Zarqawi's place? Probably because of the "Al Qaeda" sign out front.

In video footage shot by an embedded CNN crew, soldiers walked through one imposing building with concrete columns with a large sign in Arabic on the wall reading "Al-Qaeda Organiation" and "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger."

Inside the building, US soldiers found documents, old computers, notebooks, photographs and copies of the Qu'ran.

The footage also showed that flight patterns were found for aircraft, along with plans and instructions for how to shoot them down.

There were also two letters inside the house, one from al-Zarqawi giving instructions to two of his lieutenants in the region. Another sought money and help from the terrorist leader.

Just damn.
