AL-MASRI JOINS ZARQAWI. And there's some interesting history on when he entered Iraq: "He probably entered Iraq in 2002, before al-Zarqawi, and may have helped establish the first al-Qaida cell in the Baghdad area." Pre-invasion? But I thought Saddam and Al Qaeda had nothing to do with each other. . . .
UPDATE: Al Qaeda's structure has its advantages: "But if it's 'decentralised' in a way that has them killing each other, that's a good thing."
Of course, we're fighting among ourselves, too. But at least Joe Biden's violent imagery is just, well, imagery.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Biden seems a bit too fond of this particular imagery.
