Bin Laden wants al-Zarqawi body released

By LEE KEATH, Associated Press Writer

CAIRO, Egypt -

Osama bin Laden called on President Bush in an audiotape released Friday to release the body of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and said Jordan should allow the slain terrorist to be buried in his homeland.

n the 19-minute message, bin Laden paid tribute to al-Zarqawi and said the former al-Qaida in

Iraq leader had been under orders to kill Iraqis who supported U.S. forces in the country. He also vowed more attacks against the United States in the Middle East and Africa.

"We will continue to fight you and your allies everywhere, in Iraq,

Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan to run down your resources and kill your men until you return defeated to your nation," he said, addressing Bush. His voice sounded breathy and fatigued at times.

It was the fourth audio message purportedly put out this year by bin Laden. The voice in the latest message — released on an Islamic Web forum where militants often post messages — resembled that on previous recordings attributed to bin Laden, but the authenticity of the tape could not be immediately confirmed.

Al-Zarqawi was killed in a June 7 airstrike northeast of Baghdad by U.S. warplanes. Bin Laden said Bush should return al-Zarqawi's body and that Jordan's King Abdullah II should allow the militant's family to bury him.

The Jordanian government has said it will never allow al-Zarqawi to be buried in his homeland because of a November triple suicide bombing his followers carried out in Amman hotels that killed 60 people.

"What scares you about Abu Musab after he's dead?" bin Laden said, addressing Abdullah. "You know that his funeral, if allowed to happen, would be a huge funeral showing the extent of sympathy with the mujahedeen."

The audio message was accompanied by a video showing an old photo of bin Laden next to images of al-Zarqawi taken from a previous video. New video images of bin Laden have not appeared since October 2004.

The message bore the logo of As-Sahab, the al-Qaida production branch that releases all its messages. Typically, the

CIA does a technical analysis to determine whether the speaker is who the tape claims and the National Counterterrorism Center analyzes the message's contents.

In the tape, bin Laden effusively praised the Jordanian-born al-Zarqawi, often in rhyming couplets.

"Al-Zarqawi's story will live forever with the stories of the nobles, so don't cry over one who is not missing," bin Laden said. "He can teach the world a lesson on how to seize freedom ... and how to resist tyrants."

"Even if we lost one of our greatest knights and princes, we are happy that we have found a symbol for our great Islamic nations, one that the mujahedeen will remember and praise in poetry and in stories secretly and aloud," he said.

The tape comes exactly a week after bin Laden's deputy Ayman al-Zawahri issued his own tribute video to al-Zarqawi, extolling him as "the prince of martyrs."

The tributes appear to be part of an attempt by al-Qaida's leadership to tout their connection to al-Zarqawi, who emerged as a hero among Islamic extremists with his dramatic attacks in Iraq and even stole the spotlight from bin Laden and al-Zawahri.

Al-Zarqawi had sworn his allegiance to bin Laden, the terror network's overall leader, but often had tense relations with him and al-Zawahri. In July 2005, al-Zawahri reportedly wrote a letter to al-Zarqawi criticizing his attacks on Iraqi Shiite mosques and civilians, saying they hurt the mujahedeen's image.

The al-Qaida deputy also asked al-Zarqawi for money, according to the U.S. military, which said it intercepted the message.

Al-Zarqawi apparently brushed off the criticism as he continued to attack Shiites, a strategy intended to spark a Sunni-Shiite civil war.

In the new tape, bin Laden addressed "those who accuse Abu Musab of killing certain sectors of the Iraqi people," referring to the campaign of suicide bombings against Shiites.

"Abu Musab had clear instructions to focus his fight on the occupiers, particularly the Americans and to leave aside anyone who remains neutral," bin Laden said.

"But for those who refused (neutrality) and stood to fight on the side of the crusaders against the Muslims, then he should kill them whoever they are, regardless of their sect or tribe. For supporting infidels against Muslims is a major sin."

Bin Laden's mention of "instructions" to al-Zarqawi could be aimed to show the al-Qaida in Iraq leader was under his command.

"In conclusion, I say that Abu Musab was not just an honor to his tribe, his country and his Islamic nation, but to all mankind, for he embodied the meaning of pride and glory," bin Laden said.

Bin Laden and al-Zawahri are believed to be hiding in the rugged border zone of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

I think we should return it so they show us that huge funeral attended by droves of sympathizers. :)

Exactly, hand him over after we attach a GPS tracking chip in his dead carcass and let them get that huge funeral gathering where we can drop a couple more 500 lb bombs in it.

"Al-Zarqawi's story will live forever with the stories of the nobles, so don't cry over one who is not missing," bin Laden said. "He can teach the world a lesson on how to seize freedom ... and how to resist tyrants."

"Even if we lost one of our greatest knights and princes, we are happy that we have found a symbol for our great Islamic nations, one that the mujahedeen will remember and praise in poetry and in stories secretly and aloud," he said.

We should just pull a Jack Bauer. Slip a tracking devise up his ass...ship the body there FedEx...wait for the funeral....then bomb the **** out of the area.

I propose a favor in return

I propose that Osama reassure us that his AK-47 is working properly by taking the barrel, sticking it into his mouth and pulling the tigger to make sure it fires okay

I mean, it's the least he could do if he wants a favor

Are you saying Muslims are in the habit of, ah, "spelunking?" ;)

Might wanna edit that one, I think. Try "terrorists" or "Al Queda" or something. I don't think you realize how that will read to some of your fellow posters.

There's times you wish we had no code of ethics intact, the fact even those soldiers who took the pictures of mistreating iraqi POW and thrown into military prison is absurd. We are having people malnurished, beheaded, and tortured; while it's all being berated on some Al Queda website and yet we're expected to not retaliate in a likely manner. And Bin Laden wants us to return Al-Zaqarwi, must be like how he returned all of our soldiers...oh wait nevermind it was our soldiers who found our dead. Tell Bin Laden to come to American and find Al-Zaqarwi, we'll be happy to help him look!

That is exaxctly what I want to hear. Keep fighting our fighters in those places, instead of our non-fighters here.
