Zarqawi Never Sleeps

From CNN:
Iraq's interim interior minister said that he believes insurgent leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi could be behind the deadly car bombing.
The one-legged and quite possibly dead Zarqawi is amazing--sending off desperate e-mails to Osama one day, beheading an American the next, setting off car bombs the next, all conveniently timed to distract attention from the latest evidence of Bushian war crimes. Now proudly wearing the Emmanuel Goldstein mantle of anti-American supervillainy, taking over for Saddam and Osama and Khaddafi and Noriega and Castro and others: Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!

And don't forget that Zarqawi only lives, if indeed he does, at the pleasure of the Bush administration, who didn't "take him out" in 2002 when he was apparently running terrorist camps in US/Kurd controlled northern Iraq because Zarqawi was the only link they could find between Osama and Sadaam-a. Never mind that the link with Osama is tenuous and with Saddam non-existent. Bush is still pushing Zarqawi as the link.

PS: Isn't "interim interior minister" redundant in Iraq?
