Is "Zarqawi" Another Black-Op?
The Bush administration has
attributed the bulk of the Iraqi resistance to a character named "Abu Musab
There are many people asking the legitimate question: Does Zarqawi even exist?
Given the credibility of Bush and company - the people who brought us phantom
weapons of mass destruction, false links between Saddam and bin Laden, forged
uranium documents, and a stack of other untruths - there is little reason to accept
Bush's super-boogeyman on faith alone.As pointed out in the Asia
Times (Oct. 15, 2004):
single source, anywhere, claims to have actually seen 'Zarqawi' since late 2001
in Afghanistan. Ask the Pentagon. Ask the CIA. Ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
No one, on the record, is able to independently verify that 'Zarqawi' actually
Mainstream US corporate media
has not challenged the administration on this point, nor on most of the other
lies, distortions, omissions or obvious international crimes they have committed.
Rather Reuters, ABC, and Washington Post have uncritically raised the phantom
warrior to the status of a "Zarqawi movement." Never mind they haven't
made the case for Zarqawi the person, alive and breathing.
to know what proof there is that Zarqawi is in Fallujah,' Hatem Maddab, a member
of a Fallujah negotiating committee, told Arabic Al Jazeera television ( )
'Zarqawi is like the weapons of mass destruction that America invaded Iraq for,'
( ) 'We hear about that name (Zarqawi), but he is not here. More than 20
or 30 homes have been bombarded because of this Zarqawi and his followers but
only women, children and the elderly have been affected.'" (1)
Why doubt the official story?
Q: Just who has this alleged "Zarqawi" targeted primarily?
Q: What is "Zarqawi's" GOAL in Iraq at this time?
A: To trigger a civil war between Sunnis and Shi'ites.
also released a statement - but with a different voice, saying he was determined
to 'ignite a civil war between Sunnis and Shi'ites'. Curiously enough, that's
exactly what US intelligence wants, a rehashing of the same old British maxim
of 'divide and rule'."
Most people learned of the
alleged existence of "Zarqawi" when Nicholas Berg was apparently beheaded
in May of 2004. There are several serious problems with the Berg evidence, however.
1) The video
that was allegedly put out by "Zarqawi" showed heavy editing, with
a soundtrack completely out of synchronization from the images. Why?
2) The alleged voice of "Zarqawi" - a Jordanian national - did not
have a Jordanian accent, according to CNN's Arab language experts. (2)
3) The man in the video had two perfectly good legs, whereas the actual Jordanian
Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was reported to have had his leg amputated. (3)
4) Why would a man who deliberately identifies himself wear a black mask to
shield his identity?
5) The "Zarqawi" in the video wore a golden ring, which is forbidden,
and is a telltale sign that the killers were not Jihadists.
6) Nicholas Berg wore an orange jumpsuit - standard prison issue - so are we
to believe that "Al Qaeda" fighters bring along US styled orange prison
wear to clothe their victims in? For what possible reason?
7) This atrocity served the purpose of diverting media attention away from the
Abu Ghraib torture abuse scandal, that had just shocked the world.
Zarqawi's Dubious Existence
Predates the Iraq War (II)
"Zarqawi" was introduced at the United Nations, by Colin Powell on February
5th 2003. Like most of Powell's bogus information, Zarqawi's role was also proven
to be untrue.
Powell claimed that "Zarqawi" was the missing link between
Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. Powell also claimed that "Zarqawi"
was running a poison and chemical warfare training camp in northern Iraq.
has ever come out linking Saddam Hussein to Zarqawi, or to bin Laden. Even Bush
and Rumsfeld have admitted as much.
As far as the alleged chemical and poison laboratory
al-Islam - the Islamic group that uses the compound identified as a military
HQ by Powell - yesterday invited me and several other foreign journalists into
their territory for the first time. 'We are just a group of Muslims trying to
do our duty,' Mohammad Hasan, spokesman for Ansar al-Islam, explained. 'We don't
have any drugs for our fighters. We don't even have any aspirin. How can we
produce any chemicals or weapons of mass destruction?'"
- The London Observer's correspondent in Northern Iraq, February 9 2003 (4)
After the camp was destroyed
by cruise missiles, US inspectors also came to the same conclusion:
biochemical team scoured the rubble for samples. They wore protective masks
as they entered a building they suspected was a weapons lab. Inside they found
mortar shells, medical supplies, and grim prison cells, but no immediate proof
of chemical or biological agents."
- Jim Sciutto, ABC News, with US Special Forces in Northern Iraq " (ABC
News, 29 March 2003)
This alleged chemical weapons
story is even more bizarre than it appears. When Colin Powell tells the UN, and
the world, that this camp is evidence of Saddam Hussein's connection to Islamic
terrorists, he neglects to tell us that the camp was in the Kurdish "no fly
zone", and not controlled by Saddam's forces at all. The area was a US protectorate!
has been a creation of US foreign policy, a myth, a fable, the most convenient
man in Bush's alleged "war on terror." Much like Santa Claus, the Easter
Bunny, or the Tooth Fairy "Zarqawi" is a mythical creature that leaves
gifts for those in position to take advantage of them. He is a manufactured enemy,
built to specifications, and his presence ensures outrage and an escalation of
I do not believe in Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

the voice on the tape has the wrong accent. They do not believe it is Zarqawi.
U.S. officials said the killers tried to take advantage of the prison abuse controversy
to gain attention."
