Letter To Zarqawi Uncovered

A letter to Abu Musab al Zarqawei was released Oct. 6th and in it one of the leaders of Al Qaeda describes their intentions as well as political and military strategies. In it they talk about how they are worried about the Pakistani army in Northern Pakistan, as well as how they are concerned about some of their bombings targeting fellow Muslims. They state that it is hurting their efforts to gain the support of Shiite Muslims. At the end of the letter, it's good to see that they want Zarqawi to send money since their usual lines of communication have been cut off and they are going BROKE.

My question though is this, Why wasn't this reported on earlier, and also, why does the Associated Press make the US sound like coawards, and try to paint the terrorists as the victims?
" In a letter to his top deputy in Iraq al-Qaida's No. 2 leader said the United States "ran and left their agents" in Vietnam and the jihadists must have a plan ready to fill the void if the Americans suddenly leave Iraq...
At times, the letter got personal. Al-Zawahri said he tasted the bitterness of America's brutality, noting that his "favorite wife's chest was crushed by a concrete ceiling" during an apparent U.S. attack. His daughter died of a cerebral hemorrhage"
