Why DID we disband the Osama Unit?

Capitol Hill Blue has some ideas.

he news comes as the widow of Iraq al-Qaida leader Abu Musab al-Zargawi claims his own organization sold him out in exchange for a U.S. promise to ease up on the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

The woman, identified by La Repubblica as al-Zarqawi's first wife, said al-Qaida's top leadership reached a deal with U.S. intelligence because al-Zarqawi had become too powerful. She claimed Sunni tribes and Jordanian secret services mediated the deal.

"I think a secret pact was struck whose immediate goal was his death," she told the newspaper. "In return, the American troops promised to ease, at least momentarily, their hunt for bin Laden."

Sounds a little on the tin-foil side for my tastes, but the timing is kind of odd. Why WOULD we disband the CIA's Osama unit? Psy-ops? Head Games?

Or did we already get him...?
