Larry Pubes Posted June 10, 2006 Share Posted June 10, 2006 I don’t even know if this person (Al-Zarqawi) is real or was maybe created by the ingenious Cabal (said' date=' seething with sarcasm) of this scheiss of an administration- I would put nothing past them.[/quote'] pretty much...sort of.. al-zarqawi apparently met bin laden in 2002, and the subsequent propaganda from bush and blair was that this was definitive 'proof' of an essential link between iraq and al qaida(and by default linking iraq and 9/11), even though it's yet to be proven he is actually a member of al qaida(although it is widely 'assumed' for the sake of convenience in the media). thank the innocent 'dove' colon powell for this misleading speculation(at his memorable UN presentation i believe). after this apparent meeting with bin laden, al-zarqawi holed up in some shittied up area of northern iraq that wasn't under the control of the kurds or really anyone let alone saddam. numerous accounts outside the US mainstream report he was merely a salafi jihadist and nobody has produced any solid evidence of operational ties to al qaida. his importance on the ground is probably nowhere near that of local iraqi leaders, which is why so many analysts are opposed to the rhetoric coming out of washington and downing street that this is some tide changing victory. also consider the recent reports that 5 of his jihadist chump buddies were picked up and probably tortured very early in may(also many reports the US knew where he was before invading and didn't act)...but they only now have located him, a nice 'change the subject(from haditha and plummeting support for both the war and the prez)' development for bush and his homies. similar to the abu graib scandal and then the berg beheading, which the white house also claimed al-zarqawi was responsible for(again, squat for evidence). but yo, it's war so whatever...
