"This DVD accurately portrays Zarqawi as a thug who "got religion" and became a Jihadist, moving his operation to Iraq and attacking fellow Muslims as well as the occasional Coalition Soldier. It portrays the attacks on the Shi'ites as both a religiously-motivated "holy war" and as part of a long-term strategy to trigger a civil war in Iraq, a war which the Coalition would quit in disgust and which would leave al-Qaeda in control, much the same lines as Afghanistan. This is dead on.
While doing this it does not perpetuate the myth that Zarqawi was Palestinian (he was a Jordanian who grew up in a Palestinian neighborhood). If anything is lacking it is a a discussion of Zarqawi's influences in prison and some of the attacks he almost certainly perpetrated in Jordan in an attempt to "widen the war.""
