Abu Musab al-Zarqawi

A fascinating article about al-Zarqawi by Mary Anne Weaver in the Atlantic Monthly (via arts and letters daily).

During my time in Jordan, I asked a number of officials what they considered to be the most curious aspect of the relationship between the U.S. and al-Zarqawi, other than the fact that the Bush administration had inflated him.

One of them said, “The six times you could have killed Zarqawi, and you didn’t.”
