The War on Dorky Terror continues apace

Well it wasn't just CNN that bit when the DoD dangled the Zarqawi blooper reel today: the New York Times and LA Times jumped on it, as well as ABC and Fox. So far as I could find, Reuters, Bloomberg and other wire services stayed silent and Al Jazeera has yet to chime in, not even providing their usual meta-commentary on how US media was handling the story.

So clearly we have a charm offensive being conducted by the Bush administration. In the words of Major General Rick Lynch (who was apparently running the dog-and-pony show for the media), Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is "a warrior leader.. who doesn't understand how to operate his weapons system and has to rely on his subordinates to clear a weapons stoppage."

But how wise is this? Is it really such a good idea to paint Zarqawi as a bumbling idiot when haven't been able to catch the son of a bitch for two-and-a-half years? What does that make us?
