US created Iraq terror network under Abu al "Zorro" Zarqawi.
How stupid is Bushco? How low can you count?
From Democracy Now
LORETTA NAPOLEONI: ...It was part of a strategy of the Jordanian, the Americans, and also the Kurdish secret service to present Al Zarqawi as the new terror leader and the link between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.
... Now, of course, the myth of this individual [Abu al-Zarqawi] was created that day [Powell's speech to the UN] , because that day the entire world was presented with this new boogieman, with this new evil man. And that is true not only in the West, but also in the Muslim world. All of a sudden money start flowing to him, and also people start joining his insurgency in Iraq. So, in other words, we created this monster who now we can't control.... [Zarqawi is] in Iraq, for sure. He's in Iraq. But we don't know exactly where he is. He is in constant movement. In the Arab world he is considered a sort of Arab Zorro, the man that always outsmarts the coalition forces.
AMY GOODMAN: ... Loretta Napoleoni is an Italian economist and writer. Her latest book is Insurgent Iraq: Al Zarqawi and the New Generation. She wrote before that Terror Incorporated: Tracing the Dollars Behind the Terror Networks.
