Zarqawi Planning Attack in US
Fox News is reporting that intercepted communications between Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi indicate that Zarqawi has been urged to focus his efforts on attacking the US. The report also indicates Zarqawi may also be on the verge of getting caught and that this strategy might come because of increased pressure in Iraq. (ht: Ace of Spades)
UPDATE: More from USA Today which doesn't name Zarqawi, but which alludes to it when it says:
"A U.S. counterterrorism official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the "very vague" information alluded to moving forward on planning for operations outside of Iraq.Meaning, al Qaeda is part of the planning of operations in Iraq now. Meanwhile Zarqawi's group has claimed several attacks ain Iraq over the past few days. Notice how fewer and fewer of these attacks are aimed at Americans?
