Keeping Terrorists Straight

A correction: Earlier this month I wrote that “Zarqawi will probably be replaced by the Egyptian Abu Hamza al-Masri.” I copied that name down during a press conference from one of those summary subtitles that Fox News uses; not sure if it was the mistake of the military spokesman who was talking at the time or of Fox News, but that seems to be a conflation of two different pseudonyms for the new al-Qaida in Iraq leader, Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Hamza al-Muhajir. You can read more about him here. Abu Hamza al-Masri is actually the name of a different person, a radical cleric convicted in the UK for inciting violence and wanted in Yemen for alleged involvement in bombing plots.
