Zarqawi’s Cell Phone Had Iraqi Officials’ Numbers
Some surprising information appeared on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s cell phone:
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had the phone numbers of senior Iraqi officials stored in his cell phone, according to an Iraqi legislator. Waiel Abdul-Latif, a member of former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi’s party, said Monday that authorities found the numbers after al-Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, was killed in a U.S. air strike on June 7. Abdul-Latif did not give names of the officials. But he said they included ministry employees and members of parliament. He called for an investigation, saying Iraqis “cannot have one hand with the government and another with the terrorists.”
No joke. I suppose it’s conceivable that he had their numbers for some other reason than that he was collaborating with them; those innocent explanations elude me at the moment, however.
