Editorial Reviews

He was the most feared man in Iraq and a grave threat to the U.S. military there. Leaving a bloody trail of beheadings, bombings and kidnappings, Abu Musab Al Zarqawi was one of the world's most wanted terrorists who tested the skill and determination oft he most elite warriors in the U.S. Military. From his humble beginnings as a street thug in Jordan, to his rise to a terrorist mastermind, The Hunt for Zarqawi is a story of betrayal, bloodshed and frustration which ultimately ends with his demise.

Never heard his name before this DVD by National Geographic. I am better informed now on what is happening there and even more important, why.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Film November 16, 2010
By Aaron N
Verified Purchase
This film consists of news clips, random war footage, reenactments, and news anchors giving their opinions about Zarqawi. Nothing hard hitting, like footage of special forces hunting him, or footage of a news anchor embedded with the special forces. It just seems sloppily put together to fill up space on the Discovery channel (it's 40 minutes long, has commercial breaks, etc.)

4.0 out of 5 stars It seemed too short August 19, 2007
Verified Purchase
This DVD accurately portrays Zarqawi as a thug who "got religion" and became a Jihadist, moving his operation to Iraq and attacking fellow Muslims as well as the occasional Coalition Soldier. It portrays the attacks on the Shi'ites as both a religiously-motivated "holy war" and as part of a long-term strategy to trigger a civil war in Iraq, a war which the Coalition would quit in disgust and which would leave al-Qaeda in control, much the same lines as Afghanistan. This is dead on.

While doing this it does not perpetuate the myth that Zarqawi was Palestinian (he was a Jordanian who grew up in a Palestinian neighborhood). If anything is lacking it is a a discussion of Zarqawi's influences in prison and some of the attacks he almost certainly perpetrated in Jordan in an attempt to "widen the war."
