Recently came across this essay and I found it immensely interesting so I wanted to share it.

In no small amount of detail, the author explains how Zarkawi, if he ever existed at all, was created as a propaganda device, much like Emmanuel Goldstein of 1984, to put a "face" on terrorism. Furthermore the author questions how a nobody terrorist who'd been arrested and wounded managed to orchestrate subversive actions across the globe with such finesse that, though nobody had ever heard of him before, the US government was unable to locate and capture him.

A similar article on the same site explains that "global terrorism" does not exist and is instead manufactured.

I found both of these phenomenally well-written and informative. What do you guys think?

Interesting material.
Since this is less about the actual WOT and more about the conspiracy and possible disinformation, I think this topic would be better in the Disinfo Forum.
