Hatem Kamil served as the Iraqi government's negotiator in Fallujah and had challenged claims that terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was actually in the region. He had stated that claims of al-Zarqawi's presence were similar to previous claims of WMDs in Iraq.
"We want to know what evidence there is of Zarqawi's presence in Fallujah," he said in an interview with Al Jazeera television. "Zarqawi has become like Iraqi WMD ... We hear this name, but it doesn't exist. More than 15 to 20 houses were destroyed in Fallujah because they were accused of harboring Zarqawi or Zarqawi's followers."
