..There's a little Samuel Pepys in all of us..

Friday, September 29, 2006

The leaderof al Q'aeda in Iraq, in a audiotape released Thursday, has called for nuclear scientists to join his group's holy war and urged insurgents to kidnap Westerners so they could be traded for an Egyptian Sheik who's serving life in an American prison..
The called for experts in the fields of "chemistry, physics, electronics, media and all other sciences — especially nuclear scientists and explosives experts" to join his group's jihad against the West.
"We are in dire need of you," said the speaker, who identified himself as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir .. also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri.
"The field of jihad can satisfy your scientific ambitions, and the large American bases in Iraq are good places to test your unconventional weapons, whether biological or dirty, as they call them."
The 20-minute audio was posted to a Web site that frequently airs al-Qaida messages.

The voice could not be independently identified, but it was thought to be al-Masri's. He is believed to have succeeded Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who died in a U.S. airstrike north of Baghdad in June, as head of the al-Qaida-linked organization.
Now, it becomes even more important for the governments involved in the 'democratic' transformation of the country, to ponder the future of the venture.. perhaps re-evaluate the chance of success on any level..
