Break a leg, al Baghdadi!

The Leader of the Islamic State of Iraq is a luvvie.

“To further this myth [of the Islamic State of Iraq], al Masri created a fictional political head of ISI known as Omar al-Baghdadi,” said Brig. Gen Bergner. Al-Baghdadi is actually played by an actor named Abu Abdullah al Naima, and al Masri “maintains exclusive control over al Naima as he acts the part of the fictitious al-Baghdadi character.”

Are we sure that al Baghdadi is the only one? Who isn't, I mean, real. The Great Ozzie bin Laddie, leader of a small but intrepid resistance against the evil empire, has often reminded me of Gandalf, who is really Ian Mckellen, who is, after all, just an actor (no disrespect intended). Now, that can't just be a coincidence, can it? And the head of the evil empire is Sauron, which almost rhymes with neo-con. I think we are finally getting to the bottom of this.
