'Zarqawi video' posted on website

A website has posted what it says is a rare video message by the most wanted leader of the Iraq insurgency, al-Qaeda's Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It shows a man, described as Zarqawi, saying mujahideen were still fighting despite a three-year "crusade".

Zarqawi had previously issued messages on audiotapes, while US troops obtained photos of him last year. The Jordanian-born militant emerged in Iraq as the leader of an insurgent group that later merged with al-Qaeda.

The authenticity of the video has not been confirmed, but it was posted on a website that Zarqawi's group often uses to issue messages.

One part of the recording shows a man - who bears a strong resemblance with previous pictures of Zarqawi - sitting on the floor and addressing a group of masked men with an automatic rifle at his side.

"Your mujahideen sons were able to confront the most ferocious of crusader campaigns on a Muslim state," the man says.

"By God, America will be defeated in Iraq," he adds.

Funny video with great potential for psy-ops! It should be played several times over the coming months...ignoring the criticisms of the 'experts'.
