Abu Musab Al Zarqawi : a new generation terrorist leader
Date of Issue2004
S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies
Terrorism's mastermind today is Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and while he's focused on Iraq for now, the West ignores him at its peril. Washington's increase last week of the bounty on the head of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from $US10 million to $US25 million - the same as for al-Qa'ida leader Osama bin Laden and principal strategist Ayman al-Zawahiri - reflects the pivotal role he plays in the terrorists' war on the West.
