The Enemy Within

As ever, for a sample of the Angry Left's reaction to Zarqawi's death, scan the KosKidz' comments:

The first one:

Bush's idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?

A few celebrate:

We have turned a corner for freedom.

But most don't want to turn from the refrain:

Zarqawi was quite probably a psy ops job in the first place, so what does that make his "death"?

Keep your eyes on the prize:

Gay marriage?
Haditha.

Flag burning?
Haditha!

Brangelina?
HADITHA!

Zarqawi?
HADITHA!!!

Yep, they celebrate the alleged, rare misdeeds of the Marines. More:

So a bad man is dead. Big deal. To the extent that this allows some really bad people in our country to gain a propaganda victory, this is not a good thing. The US military has killed more innocent people in Iraq than this guy could have dreamed of killing, and very bad people in our country will use this event as a reason to allow that killing to continue. Forget al-Qaeda, which probably doesn't even exist as a functioning organization. Remember Haditha.

And others even speculate that a man who murdered many of our protectors in uniform is a phantom:

Of course, there is no proof anywhere that this.. guy actually exists.

Who knows, I mean all we've really seen is some pictures and video of him in the media, which could easily been anyone from anywhere.

And it's not just me, many people have said he is a myth...

And to believe that he was any sort of a factor in Iraq is just bunk, he would have been a nat on a flys ass in terms of how important he is to the violence and anarchy in Iraq, hell he was probably in hiding from the militias anyway...

That is of course, if he even existed at all...

Not everyone on the left or at DailyKos believes such nonsense. But those folks are unchallenged. Telling, isn't it?
