WORKING AT THE CARR WASH Al- aida promises attacks

Following Musab al-
Zarqawi's death, group
does not name successor
CAIRO (AP) - Al-Qaida in Iraq
vowed yesterday to carry out "major
attacks," insisting in a Web statement that it
was still powerful after the death of leader
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
The statement did not name a successor
to al-Zarqawi, who was killed by a United
States airstrike Wednesday. But it said the
group's leadership "renews its allegiance"
to Osama bin Laden.
Bin Laden "will see things that will
bring joy to his heart," it said, vowing
"to prepare major attacks that will shake
the enemy like an earthquake and rattle
them out of sleep."
The authenticity of the statement
could not be independently confirmed.
It was posted on an Islamic militant
Web forum where the group has posted
statements in the past.
Gen. George Casey, the top United
States commander in Iraq, told "Fox News

Sunday" he expected the statement from
al-Qaida in Iraq because "they're hurt
badly." He said there had been a "steady
drumbeat" of operations against al-
Zarqawi's network since the leader's
hideout was bombed.
"It's expected, but I think we'll be
prepared for it," Casey said of the
threat. "But again, you can't stop terror-
ist attacks completely."
The statement was issued in the name
of al-Qaida in Iraq but was put out by the
Mujahedeen Shura Council, an umbrella
organization of five insurgent groups that
al-Zarqawi helped create.
The statement said the leadership
of al-Qaida in Iraq met after al-Zar-
qawi's death and "agreed to continue
jihad (holy war) and not be affected
by his martyrdom."
"The organization has strengthened.
its back, regained its footing and has
been renewed with fresh blood," it said,
listing previous prominent members
who had been killed without setting
back the group's attacks.
"For those who were waging holy war

for the sake of al-Zarqawi, al-Zarqawi
is dead. But for those who were fight-
ing for the sake of God, God is alive and
eternal;' it said.
The phrase echoed the words used by
the Prophet Muhammad's successor, Abu
Bakr, after the prophet's death in the sev-
enth century to urge Muslims to stick to
their new faith.
The message did not name who will
succeed al-Zarqawi as the group's leader.
Thursday's al-Qaida statement was
signed by al-Zarqawi's deputy emir,
Abu Abdul-Rahman al-Iraqi, and sym-
pathizers quickly flooded Web forums
with vows of allegiance to him.
But yesterday's message did not men-
tion his name. There is confusion over
whether he is still alive, after the Unit-
ed States military said a man named
"Abdul-Rahman," whom it identified as
al-Zarqawi's spiritual adviser, died in the
airstrike alongside his leader.
The military has said the mostly likely
successor is an Egyptian associate of al-
Zarqawi named Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who
has a $50,000 bounty on his head.

off the idea of starting all over again,"
Coleman said.
"They not only took my computer
- they really destroyed my career
when they took my research."
Coleman has no hard copy of her research,
but said she has high hopes for recovery.
"I've got colleagues across the country
who have been rummaging through their
computers and seeing if they can pull up
anything I sent to them that had to do with
the research I found for my book," she said.
The Department of Public Safety
investigators are unsure how the thieves
gained access to the locked suite, which
contains the three offices, but suspectthat
someone left the suite door unlocked.
According to a report filed with
DPS, the perpetrators broke the
small windows on each office door
to enter the offices. They unpacked
and unwrapped items in boxes and
rummaged through various papers
that were spread across the floor in
Coleman's and Kwak's offices, DPS
Sergeant Oscar Lopez said.
"It seemed to me that the thieves
were very picky in what they chose,"
Coleman said. "They spent a long
time going through things, which
means to me that they had some
familiarity with their surroundings."
Coleman said she has not returned
to campus since the robbery because
she is bothered by the fact that any-
one could be a suspect in the case.
"It will continue to be frighten-
ing until we know who did this, and
why they did it, and until we come to
understand if it was a random inci-
dent or a targeted event," she said.
Coleman said much of student hous-
ing has security cameras and other
safety features, but University office
buildings are not as well equipped.
"I was shocked that there were no cam-
eras in the Frieze building" Coleman said.
LSA Director of Facilities and
Operations Robert Johnston said
security in the Frieze building has
increased since the incident.
