Zarqawi Treated in Amman, Jordan

Zarqawi was not in Iran, in fact the Tehran Times from Iran is now reporting… it was Jordan!

Al-Qaeda terrorist leader in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has received treatment at a hospital in the Jordanian capital Amman amid tight security by Jordanian intelligence forces and under the supervision of the Jordanian King Abdullah II, the U.S.-based daily Arab Times reported on Wednesday.

There are reliable news in Jordan that al-Zarqawi was transferred to the Al-Hussein clinic in Oman where he received treatment in a section guarded by security forces, the Arabic-language daily claimed.

The news comes after reports previously claimed that al-Zarqawi was receiving medical treatment in Iran.

Just to turn up the heat a bit, U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, warned Iraq’s neighbors about harboring Zarqawi:

U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Wednesday warned Iraq’s neighbors not to provide medical care to al Qaeda’s leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who the Pentagon believes has been wounded.

“The current assumption is that he’s in Iraq. Were a neighboring country to take him in and provide medical assistance or haven for him, they, obviously, would be associating themselves with a major linkage in the al Qaeda network and a person who has a great deal of blood on his hands,” Rumsfeld told a Pentagon briefing.

Rumsfeld was not specific about the possible consequences for a country that provided medical care for the Jordanian-born extremist, who has been accused of masterminding a spree of suicide bombings, ambushes and assassinations in Iraq.

Iraq borders Syria, Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
