Dead Osama Gives Mythical al-Zarqawi a Promotion
Osama bin Laden—who is dead and buried—has released yet another audio tape from the grave “endorsing” Abu Musab al-Zarqawi—the mythical Jordanian of Palestinian heritage and super-terrorist who is everywhere yet nowhere—as his “deputy in Iraq,” according to the Associated Press.
The voice on the tape described al-Zarqawi as the “emir,” or prince, of al-Qaida in Iraq and said Muslims there should “listen to him.”
The man speaking on the tape also referred to an October statement in which al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian, declared allegiance to bin Laden and changed his group’s name to al-Qaida in Iraq. The speaker called that “a great step on the path of unifying all the mujahedeen in establishing the state of righteousness and ending the state of injustice.”
In short, the resistance against Bush’s illegal and immoral—and murderous:100,000 dead Iraqis and counting—occupation of Iraq is an al-Qaeda affair. Anybody who calls for “ending the state of injustice” in Iraq will be considered a terrorist and sock puppet for Osama. This will make it easier for Bush to pull off more Fallujahs and similar “operations” because Osama and Abu are evil and everybody knows you don’t compromise–or deal humanely—with evil on the scale perpetuated by al-Qaeda. You also get a hall pass when it comes to respecting international law.
Moreover, now that al-Zarqawi is the “emir” of the resistance, Bush and the Strausscons can tell the world that the occupation of Iraq is part and parcel of the bogus “war on terrorism.” In fact, they have said this all along—however, they will claim the moral high ground now that Osama has promoted al-Zarqawi to run the resistance.

Once again, "thelibra", a well known disinfo agent, is sending you down the primrose path.
The real culprit (and I have documented evidence which, unfortunately, I am not allowed to publish) is the International House of Pancakes.

You know what kills me the most, that US when into Iraq to liberate the country, never ever onces it was said that Al-queda, taliban or bin-laden were in Iraq.
And now the liberation when into back stage and we are fighting al-queda in Iraq.
Can people be so naive? When the truth is going to come out, US is fighting Iraqis in Iraq.
And everything else is just but a well woven story of good versus evil on our "great" president crusaders mind.

One question I have for any expert on Bin Laden/Al Qaida.
Why would the powers that be use a figure like Osama for the poster boy of terror?
Although I am a true believer that there is definitely some shady # going on, I still cannot understand why the hell Bush or whomever chose to use Osama
Does someone have a really good answer on this?
