Jordan King receives photo of al-Zarqawi, Iran military chiefs

Paris, Jan. 15 – A photo showing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian born mastermind behind the latest spate of bombings in Iraq, standing with senior commanders of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was seen by Jordan's King Abdullah II last month, according to an Algerian journalist.

"The Islamic Republic's Foreign Minister did not attend the Amman conference of Iraq's neighbors in response to accusations made by Jordan's King Abdullah II", Atwan Tazakrat on Thursday told US-based Radio Farda.

"Fifteen days earlier, Jordanian intelligence services gave King Abdullah II documents along with a picture of a number of heads of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards standing next to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who was welcomed by Iran's Revolutionary Guards upon arrival from Afghanistan to Iran after the US attack on Afghanistan" he said.

He added, "al-Zarqawi stayed in Iran for three to four months, and Iranian officials did not deny his presence. They provided him with a fake passport with which he traveled to Syria where in mid-2002 he plotted the assassination of an American citizen".

In response to a question on whether or not the photo had been published, Tazakrat said, "This photo was never publicly distributed but I was able to see it. The source who confirmed to me that the Jordanian King had seen the photo is credible".

When are we going to quit playing around with Iran? We should let them know in no uncertain terms that if they don't stop messing with Iraq, then their screwed.

Ditto that...and I'm sure they're still harboring the old Taliban/OSB clan, as well.

I hope when our military does pull out of Iraq they go through Iran and Syria on the way home.

I have a feeling Bush will be dealing with Syria and Iran VERY SOON, at least I hope so.

Add Egypt to the list of places where our military should kick the front door in.

in that case can they arrive at Mexico City and March north? We'll set up one heck of a Tail-Gate party for them at the Arizona I-19 crossing.

We have never been "playing around" with Iran since GWB came into office - However, the situation is infinite more complex than your suggestion of telling them they are screwed.

We are currently not in the best of a military situation to go that route yet (if needed).

I don't think we attacked Iran yet because we know they have agents here who are ready to carry out massive terrorist attacks in retaliation.This is why I get so disgusted about our borders being left open.It leaves us wide open for an attack.The situation is so pathetic that the threat of a nuclear bomb being smuggled across it still changes nothing.Our government has no legitimate excuse for the lack of security in today's environment.If something like this ever does happen every politician should resign in shame for not doing their job.After 9/11 they used the excuse that they never envisioned it could happen but even a child understands the danger of open borders.

It would be nice to be able to reliably, ably, safely say and effect that

they're screwed.

I don't know that we can. I hope we can. I'm a bit skeptical.
