Zarqawi as victim

"The New York Times has a curious report from the Associated Press about the earlier days of Abu Musab Zarqawi. The story quotes the terrorist's former cellmate who says that when Zarqawi was in prison, he was tortured. The story says:

"Offering possible partial clues as to why the Jordanian-born al-Qaida leader chose Amman for triple hotel bombings earlier this month, the former cellmate, Yousef Rababaa, said: ''He hated the intelligence services intensely, and the authorities didn't know how to deal with his new ideology.''

Okay, he might well have reason to hate the intelligence services, but what about the wedding party? I wish journalists would stop this nonsense."
