I assume that by now everyone has heard about the glorious martyrdom of that renowned freedom fighter and beheader of infidels, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
What caught my eye this morning was the usual cluelessness (or disingenuousness) of CNN:
A Web site used by Al Qaeda in Iraq confirmed al-Zarqawi’s death and urged its followers to continue the insurgent fight.
Another Web site used by the group issued a statement: “People of Islam, God will not let our enemies celebrate and spread corruption in the ground. Expect the right that was stolen to come back to us and destroy the Crusaders” — an apparent reference to U.S. troops in Iraq.
