Nope, This Has Nothing to Do With The War On Terrorism

by Clifford D. May

A new al Qaeda video shows Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s terrorists murdering Iraqi security officers.

If your response is that Zarqawi wouldn’t be in Iraq if the U.S. hadn’t invaded, you don’t know what the heck you’re talking about. Zarqawi was already there, hosted by Saddam Hussein, before the liberation. (But for the MSM, it’s an article of faith – what else can you call it? — that the Saddam-Zarqawi relationship does not constitute a link between Baathists and Jihadists. They’re rivals, you see? But to suggest that rivals can’t be engaged in the same business is akin to saying that the Yankees and the Red Sox can’t both be baseball teams because, after all, they play against each other.)

There’s more on the Saddam-Zarqawi relationship here.
