The All-Purpose Terrorist

Invasion problems? Need someone to blame your troubles on, someone to write a letter saying you're winning when you're not, someone to behead someone just in time to distract attention from your own scandals? Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is your man! Though he has a poorly-fitting prosthetic leg and is probably long dead, Zarqawi can still send letters to Osama:
A leader of militants in Iraq has purportedly written to Osama bin Laden saying his fighters are being squeezed by U.S.-led coalition troops, according to a statement posted Monday on Islamic Web sites.

It was not possible to authenticate the statement allegedly from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian whose insurgent group claimed responsibility for the videotaped beheading of American Nicholas Berg.
As Michelle points out, a similar "Zarqawi" letter was conveniently discovered back in March.

Geez, George, why not blame him for the trade deficit and that ridiculous Medicare "reform" bill? Zarqawi is nothing if not versatile!
