20. Great article -- thanks for the link
Probably rushed into epublishing as a result of the death of al Zarqawi. Here is an interesting quote:

Even thenand even more so nowZarqawi was not the main force in the insurgency, the former Jordanian intelligence official, who has studied al-Zarqawi for a decade, told me. To establish himself, he carried out the Muhammad Hakim operation, and the attack against the UN. Both of them gained a lot of support for himwith the tribes, with Saddams army and other remnants of his regime. They made Zarqawi the symbol of the resistance in Iraq, but not the leader. And he never has been.

He continued, The Americans have been patently stupid in all of this. Theyve blown Zarqawi so out of proportion that, of course, his prestige has grown. And as a result, sleeper cells from all over Europe are coming to join him now. He paused for a moment, then said, Your government is creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
