Osama Wants al Zarqawi's Body

(HT for the saucy headline to commenter Analyzer below).

Somehow, it seems sadly appropriate that Osama bin Laden released a videotape praising Al Zarqawi on the eve of the Hamdan decision. Nothing like releasing a little videotape before enjoying a sound night's sleep courtesy of the US Supreme Court.

Let's think this through, lefties. Osama bin Laden praises Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. He was affiliated with al Qaeda, and fighting against the establishment of a free and democratic republic in Iraq (where he sought refuse before the war for medical treatment).

So help me understand how you can possibly think either that America would benefit by handing bin Laden a victory through our withdrawal from Iraq -- or that al Qaeda doesn't have a stake in the outcome of the conflict there?

In March of 2002, President Bush said of Osama bin Laden "I don't know where he is. I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."

C'mon, Carol, the President was over that whole bin Laden thing just six months after 9/11. Why must you you carry a grudge forever?

We know Al Qaeda was not in Iraq prior to Bush's invasion. They were in Afghanistan and Bush cut 'n ran from there to start another war in Iraq. Al-Zarqawi has no family history. He comes from an impoverished Palestinian family in Jordan. He emerges out of the blue. It was not until December 27, 2004 when Zarqawi officially announced his allegiance to Al Qaeda.

So now we see Bush's invasion for what it has become, a recruiting and real life training ground for Al Qaeda and in killing Zarqawi with two US 500 lbs bombs, Bin Laden turns him into a top ranking jihadist and marytr for Al Qaeda recruiting.

If OBL wants the body, we'll only release it to him personally. Drop by anytime, Bro!
