Iran and Syria Aid Zarqawi

(New York Post) Niles Lathem - Jordanian terror master Abu Musab Zarqawi has eluded a massive U.S. military campaign to bring him to justice with help of an extensive network of Middle East connections, including rogue elements of security services in Syria and Iran. U.S. military and intelligence officials said Wednesday that Zarqawi has managed to dodge several secret operations by the CIA and U.S. Special Forces over the past year. "Iran and Syria are giving him cover," said a U.S. official with access to intelligence reports. "He is taking advantage of the infrastructure that is allowing the movement of money, arms, and fighters into Iraq from those countries."
