Oh, Great

Major General Rick Lynch thinks that running a blooper reel helps the cause: Outtakes show al-Zarqawi as poor gunman.

Yo, Rick, if al-Zarqawi is such a loser, why haven’t you caught him? Did he just “accidentally” kill dozens of our troops? Who thought showing your enemy as an incompetent would improve your ratings?

General, al-Zarqawi may be a klutz, but he’s apparently smarter than you are.

…not to mention how happy a certain sports shoe company must be right now about being tagged “the official shoe of Iraqi terrorists”…

Well, maybe they can open discount outlets in Baghdad. The Zarqawi model might be a big seller in the Middle East, especially if they include a secret pocket. All it takes is good marketing.

How do we know the “complete” film is genuine, and not cobbled together in a US studio for our amusement?

Given the psyops campaign, you can’t be sure of anything.

One wonders… is the psyops campaign supposed to discourage and confuse the enemy, or us?

Ask yourself – al Zarqawi is wearing American shoes and carrying an American machine gun that he is not familiar with – where did he get them?
