  • Al Qaeda endorses Bush in 2004...

    Scroll down about halfway into the story for the juicy bits. Is it just me, or is the Reuters correspondent's name a touch too contrived? Must be a nom de plume...Opheera McDoom? Oh fear a McDoom?

    Hey...I don't make this stuff up, I just report it!
    Purported Al Qaeda Letter Calls Truce in Spain

    Wed Mar 17, 4:56 PM ET

    By Opheera McDoom

    CAIRO (Reuters) - A group claiming to have links with al Qaeda said on Wednesday it was calling a truce in its Spanish operations to see if the new Madrid government would withdraw its troops from Iraq, a pan-Arab newspaper said.

    In a statement sent to the Arabic language daily al-Hayat, the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades, which claimed responsibility for the Madrid bombings that killed 201 people, also urged its European units to stop all operations.

    "Because of this decision, the leadership has decided to stop all operations within the Spanish territories... until we know the intentions of the new government that has promised to withdraw Spanish troops from Iraq," the statement said.

    "And we repeat this to all the brigades present in European lands: Stop all operations."

    Skepticism has greeted previous claims of responsibility by the group for attacks in Turkey and Iraq. U.S. officials say its links with Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network are unclear.

    An unrelated videotape of a man describing himself as al Qaeda's European military spokesman also claimed responsibility for the Madrid bombing, saying it was in retaliation for outgoing Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's domestically-unpopular support for the U.S.-led Iraq war.

    In a shock election result three days after the Madrid bombs, Spain voted in the Socialist party, which has since said it will probably withdraw its troops from Iraq.

    "The Spanish people... chose peace by choosing the party that was against the alliance with America," the statement said.

    WE WANT BUSH TO WIN

    The statement said it supported President Bush in his reelection campaign, and would prefer him to win in November rather than the Democratic candidate John Kerry, as it was not possible to find a leader "more foolish than you (Bush), who deals with matters by force rather than with wisdom."

    In comments addressed to Bush, the group said:

    "Kerry will kill our nation while it sleeps because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish blasphemy and present it to the Arab and Muslim nation as civilization."

    "Because of this we desire you (Bush) to be elected."


    The group said its cells were ready for another attack and time was running out for allies of the United States.

    "Whose turn is it next? Will it be Japan or America, or Italy, Britain or Oslo or Australia?" the statement said, adding Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were also targets.

    The group is named after Muhammed Atef, also known as Abu Hafs, a close bin Laden aide killed in the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan.

    So...remember folks, a vote for Bush in November is a vote for Al Qaeda!

    Foreign extremist elements in Europe will be destroyed or forced back to countries of origin if necessary.

    Europe will not put up with the Islamist-extremist B.S. much longer. This is for the same reason why Saudi Arabia would not put up with the presence and activities of Christian extremists.

    If you guys think conflict between protestants and catholics in the UK is intense, you have seen nothing yet. Just wait.

      Hello,

      Whatever this group is, it's badly informed in American politics. Everybody know Kerry is not the type to go to war without a UN resolution or at least some multilateral allies. Bush, on the other hand, is more than willing to slug it out with Al-Qaeda and its allies.

      I'll gladly vote in Bush if Al-Qaeda wants a real war, we'll give it to them. Al-Qaeda is going to regret this choice.

        Oh god, tell me this is a joke.. it is way too amusing if true.
        "Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."

          JAMIAM, that was in bad taste. Dislike the president as much as you want but don't describe him as a terrorist "champion". Those are not our equals, those are not our buddies, they're not even homo Sapiens as defined in my books.

          Also, never forget 9/11 was Clinton's making if you want to blame anyone in America. The attack took about 3-5 years to conceive, plan and carry out and while terror movement around the world grew stronger Clinton did nothing. It's not that he could do a lot without "proper" public outrage but he did nothing. The cruise missile attack was just the sign of weakness that the bad guys had predicted.

              What was in bad taste? I only quoted an entire article, and made the remark that the right wing is making. They are claiming that a vote for Kerry is a vote for Osama. However, if this group is in any way affiliated with Al Qaeda, and they do think alike then, as mentioned - so many times before - Bush's hardheadedness and cowboy jingoism is exactly what they want in an American leader, because he, perversely enough, will be a uniter and not a divider. Only it will be the rest of the world he will be uniting and us that he's dividing.

              And as much as 9/11 was Clinton's fault for failing to act in greater strength, and earlier, it is also Bush's fault for disregarding the intelligence reports from the outgoing Clinton Administration predicting the methods, and players involved, and lacking only the specifics of the targets. Trying to blame every social ill and problem in the world, on Clinton has been the right wing's cause de celebre, for the last eleven years, and that has grown way too thin and shrill for my tastes.

              I never voted for Clinton, but feel that he's getting a bum rap by the Republicans, who've ended up making him and his wife into the freaking Antichrists. They honed their knives and their infamous smear machine on him, and now they're turning it loose on Kerry. Like Clinton, I find that Kerry doesn't really suit me as anything close to an ideal candidate, but if changing 20 years of voting Libertarian and crossing over to the Democratic Party for this election is what it takes for me to do my part to kick Bush and Company out of the White House, with whatever collateral effect that might lend to the Congressional candidates, then I'm ready to swallow my pride and do it.

              And that, my friends, is a great part of where my anger lies, in the fact that I perceive the danger to our way of life to be so much greater in the continuing reign of George II, that I feel that I must abandon my core political beliefs and vote for the Democrats, as the lesser of two evils.
