Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi
This image grab from Jordan's official TV shows Jordanian al-Qaeda leader Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, who was masterminding terror attacks to hit Jordan, according to a taped testimony by members of a terrorist cell aired by the official television station in April 2004. Zarqawi claimed responsibility for the suicide bombings on Amman hotels, according to a statement published on the Internet on Nov. 10. The three hotels targeted in the Nov. 9 attacks had been "turned by the dictator of Jordan into a garden for the enemies of (our) religion, the Jews and the Crusaders," the statement said.
