Zarqawi Document

If you haven't read the captured document Zarqawi had on a flash card in his pocket, it is worth reading. The document is by far one of the most interesting ones from the war.

The document argues that the only way to get rid of the Americans is to provide a distraction of another war for America to fight - preferably with Iran.

Somehow El Qaeda has adopted the analytical language of Communist revolutionaries, which adds an intellectual patina to the most primitive risk-benefit calculus. Do they all go to the same school? This document bolsters the case that we are winning this war.

I agree. Al Qaeda needs to start worrying about fundamentals such as making sure they have enough recruits and ample money to wage even a basic campaign.

I read recently that some MSM commentators think the Zarqawi letter is fake because they refer to Americans in the letter as Americans rather than Crusaders, or the great Satan or some other colorful expression. It makes me wonder if our intelligence officers, in writing secret reports, ever threw in a “Kraut” or “gook” to spice up their report.

It also makes me wonder if those in the MSM making such criticism realize that Al Qaeda engages in propaganda. It is likey that the leaders of Al Aaeda don’t generally use such colorful descriptions in their day to day speech.
