The Nutty World of Zawahiri

Al-Qaeda's #2 recently addressed questions from wanna-be jihadists via the internet (h/t This Ain't Hell). To emphasize the fact that the dude is a whack job, he denied the fact that Al-Qaeda kills civilians. The laundry list of Al-Qaeda perpetuated suicide bombings against Iraqi civilians is long, tragic, and horrifying (and that's just one country where Qaeda has wreaked havoc). I guess in his own pathetic world the 8th century caliphate is the model for civilization, TV is a US-Zionist conspiracy to control the world, and hiding in a cave in the tribal region of Pakistan constitutes a strategic victory.


What an Asshole

Just saying LT Nixon, I read you most every day. I'm a lonely conservative asshole on Obsidian Wings, but many of the libs there are very nice in person.

Yeah...I read his crap yesterday and thought the same thing "what a psycho asshole". The best part though is he sounds like a politician. You know, those folks that he generally says he despises?

Asshole.

DaveC,

I keep ObWi on my reader, but it's gotten a little too Obamaesque for me as of late. Thanks for coming by. Nothing wrong with being the lone conservative asshole, as I know (I live on the West Coast when not in Iraq), makes for interesting discussions at parties.

Kat,

Yeah, Zawahiri is pretty terrible.

Hi, LT,

I read yesterday morning that there was another suicide bombing in (? was it in the north of Baghdad?) But we're not hearing anything more about the Green Zone. Have the mortar and rocket attacks stopped there?

Gage,

Attacks on the IZ are kept close hold for OPSEC reasons, but I'm still hangin'.

I can't make up my mind whether Obama just went along with the way-out lefties to get the support from "the base", (and his wife), but in the recent past, John Edwards did that and it just didn't fly with most people. Too bad. The Gitmo defense lawyer that is an occasional commenter over there is a big civil liberties kind of guy, and in this upside-down world takes the position that the US has to be very careful (some would say conservative) about the means used to fight the GWOT.

DaveC,

The commenters at ObWi definitely register high on the intellectual scale. Maybe that's why I feel inadequate, haha.
