Colorado Ties To Zarqawi's Death
Located near Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Schriever Air Force Base assisted in sending Zarqawi to hell via GPS tracking and coordination with pilots in the air (video):
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado Springs had a connection to the air strike that killed terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.Zapping Zarqawi with assistance from the men and women in Colorado--job well done!
The base is where 29 satellites for the world's global positioning system are controlled.
They were able to tell the pilot exactly where he was and the precise location of the target. The second of the two bombs to drop on al-Zarqawi's hideout was guided by GPS.
The blasts from the bombs did not kill him instantly, and therefore Zarqawi had some time to contemplate his own demise. . .
