Pentagon prepares Zarqawi successor

"BAGHDAD -- The U.S. military today released new information about Abu Musab Zarqawi's successor, quickly elevating the stature of the Egyptian militant who is said in Internet postings to be the new head of Al Qaeda in Iraq.

The U.S. military also announced today that the number of American military deaths in Iraq has reached 2,500, though the 24 killed so far this month has been relatively low [...]

At a press briefing in the Iraqi capital, the U.S. military showed reporters a previously classified picture of the Egyptian-born militant man who goes by the name Abu Ayyub Masri or Sheik Abu Hamza Muhajer, wearing traditional Arab headdress.

"It's important for the people of Iraq to know who this is," said Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, spokesman for U.S.-led forces in Iraq. Caldwell said U.S. officials debated for days before deciding to release the photo and a brief biographical sketch of the alleged insurgent leader. They worried that bolstering his media profile would play into his hands. "Our intention is not to glorify him," Caldwell said"

Let's rewind a litte bit to 17/4/06:

"In more than 3 years of war, there has never been a positive citing of alleged terror mastermind Abu Musab al Zarqawi. This has led many to believe that he is merely a creation of Pentagon propagandists working with their agents in the western press. Colonel Derek Harvey strengthened those suspicions last week when he admitted in a Washington Post article that the military intentionally “enlarged Zarqawi’s caricature” to create the impression that the ongoing struggle against occupation was really a fight against terrorism. But, that is not the case. As Harvey notes, “The long term threat is not Zarqawi or religious extremists, but former regime types and their friends" ICH

La Times continues:

"But by making Masri or Muhajer, whose two names mean "Egyptian" and "immigrant" in Arabic, the U.S. continues painting Iraq's Sunni Arab rebellion as driven by outsiders, even though foreign fighters make up a small portion of guerrillas fighting Americans and the Iraqi government"

It must also be pointed out every time someone talks about 'Al Quaeda in Iraq™' that before the illegal colonization of Iraq, THERE WAS NO AL QUAEDA IN IRAQ. Iraq was a non secular state, the complete antithesis of what the true believers want to see as the foundation of a middle east state.

Al Quaeda was litteraly put into Iraq by the USA. This is an indisputable fact, and all journailists (not a mispelling) who spout the garbage lines about this should be taken to task every time. Not that it will change anything, but it makes us feel better when the truth is repeated over and over instead of our usual diet of pure pabulum lies.

A none secular state?

I think you've had a typo-moment. Under Saddam it was strictly secular. He ensured there was no religious hanky panky.

Absolutely anons, the whole thing of Aq in Iraq is highly dubious. The funny thing is I don't even think it's fooling anybody.

And the latest Zarqawi demise episode also leaves questions...

I thought it was very interesting, a few days back I think Cheney was on TV talking about these 'al Qaeda documents' which were conceding defeat, the whole thing is big joke but I wondered if this might be code to indicate a move toward a withdrawl or perhaps more realistically to influence the public in the US that "we're winning the 'war on terror in iraq so don't withdrawl troops now'" etc
