WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Fugitive terrorism suspect Abu Musab al-Zarqawi claimed responsibility Tuesday for a wave of attacks targeting U.S. and other coalition forces since Americans took control of Baghdad almost a year ago.

Although there was speculation as to the authenticity of the audio tape which was published on a Web site, Middle Eastern intelligence sources familiar with al-Zarqawi report that the tape is "100 percent genuine."

Al-Zarqawi claimed credit for a score of attacks on coalition forces, including the August 19 bombing of U.N. headquarters in Baghdad that killed 23 civilians including the U.N.'s chief envoy to Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello.

Targets al-Zarqawi claimed responsibility for attacking include "the coalition forces in Karbala, the Italians in Nasiriya, the American forces in the Al-Khaldiya Bridge, the American intelligence in the Al-Shahine Hotel, the CPA in Baghdad, the CIA in the Al-Rashid Hotel, and the Polish military in Al-Hilla."

1. Convenient for Bush, a tape from the usual suspect
I am waiting for fat Ossama to 'weigh in' now.

3. Well, a lot of people aren't giving them a reason to doubt the idiocy!
A lot of people think the '911 Confession' tape is legit.

The guy's obviously not Osama bin Laden.

Yet, people refuse to believe their "lying eyes" and instead accept the U.S. government's insistence that the tape is genuine.

Sad.
