Comparing Zawahiri vs. Democratic talking points
Ayman al-Zawahiri -- Al Qaeda's number two man -- released another videotaped message this week. Zawahiri's previous video was timed to coincide with the fifth anniversary of 9/11. The new video featured the firebrand cleric ripping the U.S., the Pope, Israel, and the U.N., not necessarily in that order, for interfering with Al Qaeda's fascist ideological vision.
In what doesn't come as much of a surprise, Zawahiri didn't hesitate to echo many of the Democratic Party's most virulent talking points. Compare-and-contrast:
"War for Oil"
"Bush lied... people died"
"Killing terrorists causes more terrorism"
I'm not sure whose talking points these are any more. But when you can't distinguish the terrorists' talking-points from the Democratic Party's, it's safe to say that both are well outside the realm of mainstream American thought processes.
The Egyptian-born al-Zawahiri is regarded as an ideological founder of al-Qaeda and carries a $25 million US bounty on his head. No word on bounties for other Democratic thought-leaders.
Oh, I forgot. The difference is the Democrats support the troops.
In this, the nuclear age of terrorism, can America really afford Democratic "leadership"?
