Zarqawi: Allah's Fearsome Warrior?

Abu Musab al Zarqawi, Allah's fearsome warrior, left the unedited video behind as he ran away from US forces.

May 4, 2006 -- Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most wanted man in Iraq, doesn't exactly look like a terrorist mastermind in a new videotape released by the U.S. military today.

In blooper-type footage from a Zarqawi video released last week, the al Qaeda in Iraq leader is seen fumbling with a machine gun.

U.S. Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch said the video was found during a series of raids in April on purported terror cell safe houses southwest of Baghdad.

Lynch said Zarqawi decided not to publicize the piece, which shows him decked out in New Balance sneakers. In it, he said, Zarqawi had trouble firing his automatic weapon and needed assistance from an aide, and his associates "do things like grab the hot barrel of the machine gun and burn themselves."

In the version that appeared on the Internet last week, Zarqawi swore allegiance to Osama bin Laden and said any government formed in Iraq would be just a "stooge."

This is hysterical. He was wearing New Balance sneakers. Sorry, but fearsome warriors don't wear sneakers. Maybe he didn't get the memo from OBL.

Watch Zarqawi fumble with his machine gun here. In case Zarqawi wasn't aware, fearsome warriors don't fumble with machine guns, either.

Hot Air is following this story as well.

I was just thinking back to... (Below threshold)

I was just thinking back to the early days of the war, when some embedded journalist was with a bunch of Marines...

A firefight broke out, and the Marines were firing every which way at the bad guys. Right in the middle of the hot part of the fight, one of them yelled out (with a bit of disappointment in his voice), "these guys suck!"

He must be a disappointment... (Below threshold)

He must be a disappointment to Allah? He cant shoot, does,nt have the guts to blow himself up, wheres and drives western culture products. Because of these things,He now only qualifys for 72 whores.

Cirby,That's frick... (Below threshold)

His name sounds a little li... (Below threshold)

His name sounds a little like Elmer Fudd talking.

"Shhhhh! I'm hunting Wanjers!"

You guys are bunch fucking ... (Below threshold)

You guys are bunch fucking wankers, why not take your hand off of it one second and consider just how the world hates america. The fact that your scared of this guy makes me laugh so hard, I think I better lay down. Wankers

"You guys are bunch fucking... (Below threshold)

"You guys are bunch fucking wankers, why not take your hand off of it one second and consider just how the world hates america."

Considering that "the world" includes guys like you, that's not exactly something to worry about. It's like being hated by the Special Ed class.

"The fact that your scared of this guy makes me laugh so hard, I think I better lay down."

What, in the story above, makes you think we're scared of Zarqawi? He's the terrorist equivalent of the Pointy-Haired Boss in Dilbert.

As of right now, there is no real unified, competent command among the Al-Qaeda folks, except for inept middle management.

Face it, asshole, we won.

And you lost...
