CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Qaida in Iraq said in a Web statement posted Monday that a militant named Abu Hamza al-Muhajer was the group's new leader. Al-Muhajer succeeds Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed Wednesday by a U.S. airstrike on his hideout northeast of Baghdad, Iraq.

The purported successor was not immediately known. The name al-Muhajer, Arabic for "immigrant," suggested he was not Iraqi.

"Al-Qaida in Iraq's council has agreed on Sheik Abu Hamza al-Muhajer to be the successor for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in the leadership of the organization," said a statement signed by the group on an Islamic militant Web forum where it often posts messages.

It said al-Muhajer was "a beloved brother with jihadi (holy war) experience and a strong footing in knowledge."

The authenticity of the statement could not be independently confirmed.

But these guys (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=142110) pledged their allegiance to Al-Masri.

Does that mean that they'll have to fight that out too? :shrug:

“Redneck, hayseed, gear head, whatever” I post like that ‘cause that’s what I’d sound like if we met in person. It’s a habit I got into ‘cause I try to be honest to who I am while post’n on this board.
