9. They need somebody to demonize
to keep the dumshits scared enough to go along with their bullshit. They had the perfect guy in bin laden but they can't use him anymore because it's so obvious that they haven't caught him. enter Zarqawi - if he didn't exist they'd have to invent him. Hmmmmmm, you don't think?
