Al-Qaeda in Iraq has named Abu Hamza al-Muhajir as the successor to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi via a terrorist website. This guy is pretty much unknown and who knows if the website is authoritative. Hopefully we won't get to know who he is because he will face a swift death at the hands of our troops.
Interestingly, there do not appear to be obvious references to Abu Hamza al-Muhajir in any of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's propaganda material from the last three years, and to the best of my knowledge, neither the Iraqi government nor the U.S. military has ever publicly named him as a wanted Al-Qaida member. Even the jihadi community that supports Al-Qaida was caught somewhat offguard by this announcement -- many of them had simply assumed that Al-Qaida Deputy Commander Abu Abdelrahman al-Iraqi would take over in Zarqawi's absence.
