it up with the black ops boys ...
The Abu Musab al-Zarqawi show
1 June 2005
last week of May was a nail-biting time for fans of the greatest soap
opera to come out of the War on Terror the Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
weeks end the worlds most wanted terrorist scourge
of the occupation and Shiite Muslims, representative of Osama bin Forgotten
gravely wounded in battle, had made his way to the safety of
Shiite Iran. Think about that. He manages to get from the west of Iraq,
across the war-torn country, through dozens of checkpoints, to seek
safety among apostates he had sworn to expunge from the face of the
earth. If you believe that, I have a second-hand Nissan Bluebird to
upon a time, a long time ago, there was a real Zarqawi. Nobody is willing
to tell what really happened to him, but at some point before the invasion
of Iraq he vanished from the real world and entered the twilight zone
of black operations to become a symbol of evil and a master of disguise.
Nowadays he hides out in the CIA complex at Langley, Virginia, a basement
in Baghdads Green Zone, an office in Kuwait
or maybe all
Are the black ops boys who script the Zarqawi character having fun?
We can only imagine the mirth as they workshop their mans next
adventure over a Budweiser or three, the snickers as they upload his
latest message to the internet, the hysterical laughter as they follow
the earnest accounts of his evil deeds in the worlds media. With
journalists as compliant as this, it must be like shooting fish in a
For those who havent been following the Zarqawi show heres
The wicked Wahabist first came to notice when Colin Powell tried to
coerce the UN into backing the invasion of Iraq. Our man was his key
bit of evidence for collusion between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda. Zarqawi,
having lost a leg in combat, had an artificial one fitted in one of
Saddams hospitals, Powell claimed. Oddly enough, he was said to
be hiding out among his bitter enemies in Kurdish-controlled territory,
then protected by the US enforced no-fly zone. Really?
the invasion of Iraq the Coalition Provisional Authority discovered
a CD containing a letter from Zarqawi to bin Laden in which the dastardly
insurgent railed against Iraqs Shiite majority and outlined his
plan to foment civil war in the country. Naturally, Coalition spokesman
trotted out this proof of the evil of the Resistance on every possible
occasion. Not only was Zarqawi behind every car bombing in Iraq he then
went international and masterminded the Madrid train bombing.
Then, just in time to counteract the shock of the Abu Ghraib scandal,
Zarqawi beheaded the missing American contractor, Nick Berg. Trouble
was, the tin-leg terrorist was seen on the notorious beheading video
stepping nimbly forward to wield the knife. Ah, the US spokesmen glibly
admitted, maybe his leg wasnt shot off after all, maybe we were
wrong about that. Pity about the 100,000 Iraqis who died in the invasion,
but, hey, everybody makes mistakes.
After the Berg job, Zarqawi vanished for a while, before surfacing in
Fallujah, where he provided the excuse for the Yanks to flatten the
city, with the loss of tens of thousands more lives. There was vague
media talk of US troops finding Zarqawis torture chambers, but
strangely, no pictures or first-hand accounts. Alas, the man himself
to be useful another day.
He popped up in the West of Iraq, near the Syrian border, where he became
the subject of the recent Operation Matador. A few more towns were flattened
but gosh, no Zarqawi.
Which brings us down to the last week of May, when the worlds
press began to run with stories by embedded journalists to the effect
that Zarqawi had been wounded in an ambush. At first this stuff was
attributed to statements on those mysterious Islamic websites (the
authenticity of which couldnt be confirmed) that only embedded
journalists get tipped off about and that vanish after a few hours.
The US army spokesman played inquiries with a straight face. We
dont know whether its fact or fiction. He continues to be
our number one target, he said. Naturally.
So did the puppet Iraqi prime ministers security advisor
who added: In all cases there are many probabilities. Maybe he
is not wounded and he posted this statement on the internet to say he
is wounded and then post another statement to say that he is treated
and fine and he is like superman.
Indeed. Like Superman: mythical figure with fabulous powers.
But then the plot had thickened. By Thursday 26 May the mainstream media
were breathlessly reporting that a struggle for succession had broken
out within al-Qaeda Iraq Inc., which was leaking like Australias
Liberal Party during a leadership contest. Half the organization was
spending hours on the phone to Western journalists, who were offering
direct quotes from a variety of talkative terrorists. Yeah, right. How
likely is that?
On that day Donald Rumsfeld, no less, told thousands of US paratroopers
that Zarqawi was cornered like Hitler in his bunker (he must have just
seen the movie). Even hardened observers like me were thinking the scriptwriters
had decided to kill off their creation. Perhaps hed evaded his
pursuers so often they were looking incompetent. Perhaps they were risking
making him into a kind of Robin Hood.
But it wasnt to be. How could they replace an asset as useful
as Zarqawi? Even as Rummy was speaking the black ops scriptwriters were
moving their prize asset out of harms way.
Iran. Yes, thats it. Lets get him to Iran. Thats
more evidence of Iranian perfidy. Another reason why we should bomb
the crap out of them.

al-Zarqawi a false flag operative?
If Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the terrorist leader
credited with the beheading deaths of Nick Berg and Kim Sun-Il, did
not exist it would be necessary for the United States to invent him.
That may well be what the CIA has done. READ
