If this is an authentic statement, I believe it is a signal or message.
As just the other day Zarqawi pledged alliance with al Qaeda, and
prior to the alliance request, Zarqawi wrote a letter (several months
back) to OBL asking him, in almost please forgive type language, for
what he is doing in Iraq, and that he does not mean to step on any
Now to turn around, and state he is the godfather, doesn't fit.
“He is making it clear that Bin Laden has taken flight and he is the
only one with the guts to take on the West."
"taken flight" can have many types of meanings...
