AL-ZARQAWI SPINS AND BLUSTERS

It looks like the outrage Al-Zarqawi caused by the bombings in Jordan shook him a little bit. He's started "the spin" cycle to try and deflect some of the criticsim.

Al-Zarqawi said the bomber who detonated his explosives in the Radisson SAS hotel on Nov. 9 was targeting a hall where he claimed Israeli and American intelligence officials were meeting.

That bomb caused part of the roof to fall in the wedding hall.

"We didn't target them. Our target was halls being used by Zionist intelligence who were meeting there at the time," he said. "Our brothers knew their targets with great precision." Al-Zarqawi accused the Jordanian government of hiding casualties among Israeli and American intelligence agents, and he insisted al-Qaida in Iraq was not targeting fellow Muslims.

Al-Zarqawi is also trying to deflect attention by directing his anger at King Abdullah II.

"Your star is fading. You will not escape your fate, you descendant of traitors. We will be able to reach your head and chop it off," al- Zarqawi said, referring to the king.

Unfortunately, given their penchant for buying conspiracy theories hook, line, and sinker, I'm afraid the Muslim world will believe his spin. After all, it's easier to blame the Jews and Americans than to engage in self-examination or critcism.
