Al-Zarqawi Video Is A Pentagon Propaganda Psy-Op
April 10th Washington Post article said US would 'play up' role of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, target 'US home audience'

The Pentagon is engaged in a psychological PR propaganda campaign to exaggerate the role of Musab Al-Zarqawi in Iraq and link the war in Iraq to 9/11. How do we know? Because their own leaked documents admit it.
How else can we therefore quantify yesterday's 'surprise' release of the Al-Zarqawi video tape as anything other than a cynical ploy on the part of the Pentagon to hoodwink the American public into believing that George W. Bush is leading US troops in a brave turf war against global terrorists?
An April 10th Washington Post article brazenly stated,
"The U.S. military is conducting a propaganda campaign to magnify the role of the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, according to internal military documents and officers familiar with the program. The effort has raised his profile in a way that some military intelligence officials believe may have overstated his importance and helped the Bush administration tie the war to the organization responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."
The Post even described how the Pentagon had concocted fake Al-Zarqawi letters boasting about suicide attacks and leaked them to Dexter Filkins of the New York Times, who splashed it on the front page the next day. Despite the fact that Filkins had severe doubts about the authenticity of the letter, the Times got down on their knees, licked boots, and published it anyway.
And the military leadership has the nerve to claims its propaganda doesn't target US citizens and only appears in 'liberated' Iraqi newspapers.
The same documents directly state that the false promotion of Al-Zarqawi includes marking the the "U.S. Home Audience" as one of the targets of a broader propaganda campaign."
Transcripts of meetings between the Joint Chiefs of Staff talk about turning Al-Zarqawi into a caricature and making him appear, "more important than he really is."
Donald Rumsfeld recently stated that the US media was being used by Bin Laden and Al-Zarqawi as a tool of propaganda for Al-Qaeda! The Pentagon itself is running PR for Al-Qaeda in trying to link the monumental mess in Iraq to the events of 9/11.
Americans watched Forrest Gump shake hands with President Kennedy 12 years ago. Do you really think creating a mock video in 2006 is going to be a problem?
The Pentagon admits it leaked fake Al-Zarqawi letters to the New York Times, what would prevent them from leaking a video? Especially as the deceased Al-Zarqawi isn't around to disown himself of appearing in the video.
Look at the image below from Al-Zarwaqi firing a machine gun. It barely even appears as if the Pentagon went to the trouble of flying to the Nevada desert. This looks more like a shoddy low budget blue screen cut and paste.
Regular readers won't need to be reminded of the 2001 'Osama confession tape' - rated R for ridiculous, a fat bin Laden conveniently owns up to 9/11, completely contradicting his earlier statements, on a video tape magically 'discovered' during a random house search in Jalalabad.
This is what Bin Laden told the Pakistani paper Ummat Karachi on September 28th 2001.
"I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle."
The Al-Zarqawi tape followed hot on the heels of a new Bin Laden tape that again astoundingly gave the pretext for the Bush administration to pursue its goals in Sudan, Iraq and Iran with increased worldwide support at a time when Bush's poll numbers sank to a record low of 32 per cent.
Osama just seems to employ perfect timing on every occasion to pop up right when it is most rewarding for the Neo-Cons. The October surprise in 2004, a Bush bashing Bin Laden bonanza tape, enabled George W. to secure the extra couple of points he needed to ensure re-election. Even role-playing Skull and Bones puppet Kerry went off-script and blamed the Bin Laden video for his defeat. Veteran newsman Walter Cronkite told Larry King that the whole thing was a Karl Rove orchestrated set-up.
The Al-Zarqawi tape is a Pentagon orchestration and those that swallow it presumably also believe that JFK was cryogenically resurrected to play a cameo role with Tom Hanks 31 years after his own death.
