Isn’t that nice? The number two guy in Al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri, says he doesn’t like the Democrats’ bill to get us out of Iraq. Why? Because he wants the US to remain in a quagmire where our troops are killed and killed and killed, i.e., he likes the Republican plan for Iraq.
In a new video posted today on the Internet, al Qaeda’s number two man, Ayman al Zawahiri, mocks the bill passed by Congress setting a timetable for the pullout of U.S. troops in Iraq.
“This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap,” Zawahiri says in answer to a question posed to him an interviewer.
Continuing in the same tone, Zawahiri says, “We ask Allah that they only get out of it after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, in order that we give the spillers of blood in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson.”
Yes, Al Qaeda just endorsed George Bush’s plan for Iraq. Funny how George Bush and the Republicans now sound exactly like Al Qaeda.
