    "Al Qaeda" Announces Zarqawi's Successor

    An apparent al Qaeda website announced the successor to Abu Musa'ab al-Zarqawi today, a name different than the one U.S. military forces had cited last week. Abu Hamza al-Muhajir was described as "hoping to continue what Abu Musa'ab has started."

    According to a translation by the ABC News bureau in Baghdad of the posting by the media department for the Mujahideen Shura Council in Iraq, "The word of the Mujahideen Shura Council has gathered in one word to choose sheik Abu Hamza Al-Muhajir to be the successor for the deceased sheik Abu Musa'ab Zarqawi to head al Qaeda.

    Sheik Abu Hamza Al-Muhajir, is a good brother, ex-member in Jihad with a lot of religious information. We ask God to lead him and us to the right path, and to accomplish what sheik Zarqawi has started."

    You would think someone who is leading Al Qaeda in Iraq would want their identity to remain secret. It's harder for them to kill you when they don't even know who you are.

    I'm sure they're taking a page out of the neocon strategy book.
    Putting a figurehead up there to appease and/or infuriate the masses, meanwhile the real decisions will be made by a group of figures like Dick Cheney and other neocon PNAC members, that is assuming it isn't actually Dick Cheney and other PNAC members already making those decisions.
