Al-Zarqawi: The New Face of Evil

(Newsweek) Mark Hosenball - Jordanian terrorist Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, who the CIA says probably wielded the knife in the gruesome beheading of Nicholas Berg, may be the most dangerous and effective Islamic terrorist at large. He has been linked to several big terror attacks in Iraq last year including the UN headquarters bombing and the bombing of an Italian paramilitary encampment - as well as instigating the Sunni rebellion in Fallujah. Al-Zarqawi heads a jihadi group called al-Tawhid, which aims to oust the Jordanian monarchy. But al-Zarqawi's network has been traced as far east as the former Soviet Georgia and as far north as Great Britain.
