God be praised! Another jihad video from the glorious CIA contractor brothers at Intelcenter, known for their timely, exclusive access to all the Islamic insurgent media that our Western outlets can choke down. Were it not for Intelcenter, how could Al-Qaeda ever get its message out? Yes, this is sarcasm. And another thing that should be noted is that days before Baitullah Mehsud (the lost Emir they’re blathering about below) was targeted by a CIA drone, a whistleblower – Qari Zainuddin – called him out as an intelligence agency stooge and was himself promptly if indiscretely assassinated by one of Mehsud’s men. Suffice it to say, there’s a lot of double-dealing and accusation going on in Af/Pak, but it looks as though this guy was a bona fide suicidal Taliban fighter. That’s assuming he even knew whom he was ultimately working for.

Video aired posthumously shows former Jordanian militant urging attacks on US to avenge killing of Taliban chief
Private television station AAJ showed a video purportedly of the bomber Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi with Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud beside him.
“We will never forget the blood of our emir Baitullah Mehsoud. We will always demand revenge for him inside America and outside,” he said in the minute-and-a-half video.
The IntelCenter, a US-based group monitoring Islamist websites, said the video had been released by the Pakistani branch of the Taliban.
Balawi blew himself up at a meeting with seven CIA employees after a Jordanian intelligence officer reportedly took the bomber to Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost province.
Balawi was arrested by Jordanian intelligence more than a year ago on suspicion of extremist sympathies, then apparently agreed to support the US in its fight against al-Qaida.
