Until they have blown up the White House

In a new audio tape from Al-Qaeda, "a man who identified himself as Abu Hamza al- Muhajir (also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri) provided his take on our recent elections. Excerpts from the Associated Press article appear below:

"Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed in a new audio tape Friday to be winning the war faster than expected in Iraq and said it had mobilized 12,000 fighters who had "vowed to die for God's sake."

"On the audio tape made available on militant Web sites, the al-Qaida in Iraq leader also welcomed the Republican electoral defeat that led to the departure of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. He added that the group's fighters would not rest until they had blown up the White House."

"We will not rest from our Jihad until we are under the olive trees of Rumieh and we have blown up the filthiest house _ which is called the White House," al-Muhajir said. It was not clear what Rumieh was referring to."

"The American people have put their feet on the right path by ... realizing their president's betrayal in supporting Israel," the terror leader said. "So they voted for something reasonable in the last elections."

President Bush as "the most stupid president" in U.S. history, al-Masri reached out to the Muslim world and said his group was winning the war in Iraq faster than expected due to U.S. policies."

It is enlightening to read that al-Masri apparently agrees with many on the Left who think President Bush is stupid. It is also interesting that al-Masri thinks Democratic control of Congress is “reasonable” in al-Qaeda’s view. Not that it matters to them since al-Masri has now vowed not to rest until they’ve blown up the White House.

But hey, what does he know. We should probably stick our heads in the sand, ignore him and agree with Rosie O’Donnel who recently said that the terrorists are mothers and fathers, and that we just have to believe that the world is a good place! (Can anyone possibly be this clueless?)

I agree Rosie O'Donnel is an absolute moron. Her viewpoint should be disregarded because it has little to do with reality.

This moron and his tape (can't these terrorists figure out how to podcast... or at least burn a CD for goodness sakes). Why are we buying this? Democrats are good for terrorists... come on... they haven't done anyhing yet. Maybe they'll screw things up... maybe they won't. I have to say that if they want to get elected again in 2 years or have a chance at the presidency they need to act in a way that makes things better in Iraq and that dosn't mean cut-and-run. They know that, they've even said it (I beleive I've heard Howard Dean say something to this affect). They may not like the war, but they can't cut and run and make things worse and expect the American people to support them again.

Either way... I'm tired of all of this speculating about how bad things are now that the Democrats have power... THEY HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING YET. The stuff they're talking about minimum wage hike, looking at tax cuts, and a better policy for Iraq doesn't freak me out... it will not freak me out until they actually say exactly what they intend to do with these issues or add other issues and plans to their agenda.

I get the point about posting this statement from this terrorist but why all of the speculation... are you looking for a big "I told you so?".

Why do you keep needing to use Rosie O'Donnel as your strawman? Yes, she's an idiot, but it's not like she's running the Democratic party or anything. How about a real debate discussing what people with actual power have said or done?
