Is Newsweek feeding the Insurgency?

Since the capture of Al-Zarqawi, we have learned that among his limited possessions was a May 2nd Edition of Newsweek Magazine. While Newsweek is known for taking a left of center viewpoint on most issues and releasing controversial stories that in the past have put the US troops in harms way is Newsweeks true goal, to inflame and educate the terrorists as well as the insurgency in Iraq in order for the Democrats to take over the White House in 2008.

Many at Newsweek, such as Howard Fineman have been against the Iraq war since we went in, will his magazine stop at nothing to make sure the US comes out a loser?

Newsweek seems to cover any story that might 1. Help the Democratic Party reclaim the White House in '08 or 2. Help educate potential terrorists/the insurgency in Iraq counter the Coalitions presence in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. Newsweek will exploit any battlefield knowledge to the advantage of the Iraqi Insurgency.

The magazine reports on the goals and tactics of the insurgency and lets its readers know what is working and what is not for the insurgency. Could the insurgency have a greater ally than Newsweek?

Or, Newsweek could be doing what it normally does: report events as it sees them.

Too much censorship in the name of "national security" occurs.

The fact that he was reported to have a copy of Newsweek, amongst other anomalies, makes me suspect the whole story of his life and death even more.
