Oh boy, Zarqawi is running a franchise operation now:

Interior Minister Bayan Jabor said documents found with Abu Azzam, said to be a lieutenant of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most wanted man in Iraq, signaled a plan to send foreign Arab Sunni militants back home to widen the battlefield beyond Iraq.

“We got hold of a very important letter from Abu Azzam to Zarqawi asking him to begin to move a number of Arab fighters to the countries they came from to transfer their experience in car bombings in Iraq,” Jabor told Reuters in an interview in Amman.

“So you will see insurgencies in other countries,” said Jabor, a member of the Shi'ite Islamist SCIRI party, a key component of the Shi'ite- and Kurdish-led coalition government.

I've made this point all along- Bush played the patsy for Bin Laden. By invading Iraq and fulfilling B L's crazed propaganda that the US was looking to invade and occupy a Muslim country, he played right into B L's plans, causing less-extreme Muslims to think B L wasn't such a nutjob and knew what he was talking about. We're going to see a helluva lot more of this Muslim extremism before we see less.

You know, this is yet another piece of fallout among many where, if Bush's team cared just one smidgeon more about responsibly running a country instead of just doing anything it takes to stay in power, at least the mistakes that were made would be mitigated. But instead, there's no margin for error. Every little thing that goes wrong doesn't get cushioned by, say, good border control, or a serious show of occupying troops to keep order, or conducting interrogations in a manner befitting our country's best values… Nope, because anybody who would have thought to plan for anything less rosy than Iraqis welcoming us with flowers was railroaded out of the White House…

I totally agree- Richard Clarke, for instance. Instead of wanting intelligent dissenting opinions and listening to them and considering them, they've surrounded themselves with yes-men. Worse, the press was cowed into acquiescence. Urgh.
