Osama and iraqi resistance alliance

osama forms an alliance with the iraqi resistance.


"WASHINGTON - Preliminary analysis of an audio tape urging Iraqis to boycott elections planned for next month indicates that the voice belongs to Osama bin Laden, a senior government official told NBC News on Tuesday. "

“Bin Laden gets the benefits of Zarqawi’s notoriety,” said Vince Cannistraro, former CIA counterterrorism chief. “He (al-Zarqawi) has got the pre-eminent insurgency in Iraq. He’s the one who is the bloodiest, who carried out the most dramatic and public suicide bombings.”

The difference between this and other bin Laden alliances, Cannistraro said, is that bin Laden — a Sunni Muslim — “has not been a vocal enemy against the Shiites. By adopting Zarqawi, he’s taking that whole package, someone who is virulently anti-Shiite.”

Still it may be a mistake, afterall a total lack of aliances makes it ambiguous who your exact enemies are making it easier to have allies in the left and throughout hte muslim world.
