Zarqawi A "US-made" "enemy to America's liking" | Main | Inappropriate Glee? Not Hardly!
June 09, 2006

Sunnis Sold Out Zarqawi To Broker Power-Share Deal?

Tiger Hawk with a conspiracy theory that isn't... oh, what's the proper term? batshit lunatic crazy.

Whenever negotiations among the Americans, the Shia, the Kurds and the Iranians have threatened to reduce the collective Sunni position, the Sunnis have played the al-Zarqawi card and literally blown something or someone up.

It is the only reliable card that they have had to play, and they have played it often and to great effect. The Sunnis have also known that if their position within the new Iraqi government is to be formalized and cemented, they would have to rein in al-Zarqawi and his jihadist allies. If they do not, there was no deal.

It strikes us as far more than a coincidence that within hours of the confirmation of al-Zarqawi's death, the Iraqi Parliament put the finishing touches on the new Iraqi government.

Of course, the last members of the cabinet were already set before the bombing, but of course it might have been intelligence offered up days ago that preceeded the deal.

True? Who knows. Either way, a loathsome cancer has been carved out of the body humanity.

Thanks to Jim W.

More Skulduggery: The purported snitch who snatched Zarqawi had his confession of terrorism broadcast on Jordanian TV a few weeks ago. Dan Riehl thinks this doesn't make sense.

If this guy really was the snitch, wouldn't Zarqawi have been on high alert, knowing he was in Jordanian hands and talking? Makes little sense that he would spend 18 hours in his safe house, when his practice had been to spend no more than 12 hours in one place at one time, if he knew someone with the goods on him was talking.

Riehl speculates he this Karbouly feller might not have been the snitch at all. But now that all of Al Qaeda is wondering who the rat in their house is, everyone's saying, "Oh, don't worry about it, it's just that guy you already know about. Keep on keepin' on."

And, as it turns out, our friendly friends at the Guardian have named the person who might have been the real snitch:

The Guardian and WaPo supply names: the former says the key tipster was a deputy named Kassim al-Ani who was arrested three days ago while the latter claims the breakthrough came last month when Ziad Khalaf al-Kerbouly, another deputy, was caught.

Three days ago? Well, if he was arrested three days ago, he would have more current information about Zarqawi; Zarqawi would not necessarily know he'd been caught (too soon to realize he'd gone missing); and it would explain why Zarq was zapped a couple of days ago rather than a couple of weeks ago.

So maybe ABC News was actually on America's side in fingering Karbouly as the informant, as he might not have been the informant at all.

That means that the Guardian may have named the actual informant. Which would mean, in turn, Guardian continues to do the tough job of playing intelligence service and state department for the World Islamofascist Movement.
