Al Qaeda Endorses Obama

By endorsing McCain:
"Al-Qaeda will have to support McCain in the coming election," said a commentary posted Monday on the extremist Web site al-Hesbah, which is closely linked to the terrorist group. It said the Arizona Republican would continue the "failing march of his predecessor," President Bush.
It's pretty clear. If Jihadist websites are favoring McCain they obviously prefer Obama. Why would they tell the truth?

Oh sure, the case can be made that bin Laden is trying to "Soviet" us into bankruptcy, a line of propaganda they're finally picking up on by calling our financial mess proof of victory:
In language that was by turns mocking and ominous, the newest posting credited al-Qaeda with having lured Washington into a trap that had "exhausted its resources and bankrupted its economy."
But the alternative is to give up and cede the same territory back to the jihadists. There's no question that when if Obama retreats from Iraq the world will witness a collective swoon from the fanatics, insurgents, extremists and criminals, emboldening any of their future endeavors. The term "paper tiger" came from both Saddam and bin Laden.

So leaving isn't the best option, either. I'm certainly open to other ideas, but as Obama indicated today his strategy is already set:
“The next administration is going to be inheriting a whole host of really big problems and so the president is going to be tested and the question is will the next president meet that test by moving America in a new direction by sending a clear signal to the rest of the world that we are no longer about bluster and unilateralism and ideology but we’re about creating partnerships around the world to solve practical problems.”
That'll strike fear into 'em--we'll open fire on head-chopping child murderers with partnerships to solve the problem of getting rid of Israel, like perhaps via financial help from our busted economy. These guys must be quietly licking their chops thinking the Great Satan is on its last legs.

BTW, did you catch Obama's dig against McCain in the Ellen clip? Yes, yes, surely Barack's a better dancer than an old war cripple. Wait, is that racist?
