Today’s Associated Press story begins:
Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri condemned President Bush in a video statement released Friday, calling him a failure and a liar. "Why don't you tell them how many million citizens of America and its allies you intend to kill in search of the imaginary victory and in breathless pursuit of the mirage towards which you are driving your people's sons in order increase your profits?" al-Zawahri said in a portion of the video released by the Virginia-based IntelCenter.
I have a comment and a question.
The comment: If Osama bin Laden is alive, why is this al-Zawahri guy always the one on tape? Especially after the speculation last week about bin Laden’s supposed death. Hummm. Maybe he has achieved room temperature.
The question: Do the left-wing conspiracy theorists cringe when they hear someone like al-Zawahri parrot their lines about Bush profiteering or do they see it as confirmation?
