Skip to comments.A Chilling Iraqi Terror Tape (New Zarqawi video given to Time Magazine)
Posted on 07/04/2004 9:29:18 AM PDT by FairOpinion
Jihad leader Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian terrorist and the most wanted man in Iraq, this weekend released a telling window into his organization, Attawhid wal Jihad, or Unity and Jihad. In a slickly produced hour-long video Zarqawi lays bare the milieu of his suicide bombers, their safehouses, their rituals and their targeting guidelines. Given directly to TIME, the video is a bold, menacing statement of the group's intent and capability. The subtext of this disturbing tape is that for the U.S. this is likely to be a long, drawn out fight in Iraq against a committed, well-organized enemy.
The tape contains many chilling scenes. When the chairman of the U.S. appointed Iraqi Governing Council, Izzedine Salam, then the country's highest Iraqi official, was assassinated last month in a car bomb Zarqawi quickly claimed credit. Now he shows the act, in graphic footage shot from a parked car: A convoy of white SUVs disappears down a Baghdad street, followed a moment later by a ball of flame and explosion so intense the windscreen through which the cameraman films cracks before your eyes.

Time Maggotzine brags about receiving something "directly" from al-Zarqawi?
My question is why oh why has Time decided to side with the terrorists? Why do I conclude this? Because this tape was delivered directly to Time...that means they have contacts and knowledge of the whereabouts of these slime balls. It is like the TV camera grews who stand by and watch as gang bangers do their dirty little deeds. I am tired of the lame stream media and their support of our enemies...DO NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCT...that is the only lesson they understand
I would honestly suggest that it is not implausible to believe that al-Jazeera may have been complicit in the manufacture of this tape. At least one al-Jazeera reporter (their one-time Afghan correspondent) is already under arrest for al-Qaeda membership in Spain and there have been numerous complaints by the DoD of al-Jazeera running interference for terrorists in Iraq.
Also, doesn't this latest Zarqawi video tend to back up Bush's claim that Iraq is the central front in the War on Terrorism?
Terrific! LOL! (Though it's really not funny!) Be sure this gets lots of coverage! Well done!~SB
I discontinued my subscription to that propaganda rag more than 10 years ago. I told them in no uncertain terms never to send that trash to my home again. They didn't.
The NAZIs produced their own propaganda movies even as Allied forces were shelling Berlin itself.
In april, the terrorists managed to kill 132 good Americans.
In May, they killed 81 of us.
In June, they only managed to kill 32 of us.
So far in July they've killed 1 (one) American and released one propaganda tape.
1 (plus a terror tape)
Does anyone notice a trend here?!
They've just about left the battlefield, save for their propaganda blitz against our home front.
Time magazine can scream all day long about the "fearsome" terrorists, but the fatality count refutes soundly such sophomoric "logic".
They are firing mortars, driving suicide car bombs, and planting IED roadside bombs.
That's all just a longwinded way of saying that they are only managing to make "nuisance attacks" now.
At my age, I appreciate that type size. Also the message.
No in a perfect world Mr. Ware would in fact get his butt FRAGGED!
Has anyone seen the video of the Marine whom they claim to have beheaded???
I don't believe it, because I haven't heard any more about it, but I wasn't at home earlier today for the news?????
I thought they had lied about it, to get us to stop praying for him.
Thanks for the ping!
I guess, when being vigilant, also look for people, who look like they are waiting, and ready to start the tape rolling, when there is nothing apparently is going on...yet.
And they tip off the media sometimes.
Thoughtful and true, Wolf. And here's a prediction: Iraq's new government will declare martial law and go after the terrorists viciously and without compromise. Since the U.S. Army and Marines cannot be used as the instrument of foreign martial law, a withdrawal will take place much earlier than expected -- probably phased to some friendly Gulf state like Qatar or Bahrain, so as to be ready for conflict with Syria or Iran
I asked my good buddy Michael Moore, and he says "No."
Good to see you back here, and I agree that Al Jazeera almost certainly had a hand in this propaganda tape.
