Al Qaeda Confirms “War On Terror” A Success

We have long heard from the Lefties that the “War on Terror” was a smokescreen for Bush to invade Iraq for personal and pecuniary reasons. They have questioned time and time again the logic of “We’re fighting them there, so we don’t have to fight them here.” Yesterday, we learned the the truth of the issue: The war on terror is working! The enemy told us themselves.

Pentagon: Bin Laden deputy complains about money, Iraq tactics
U.S. says it obtained intercepted letter

WASHINGTON (CNN) — An intercepted letter from Osama bin Laden’s deputy to the al Qaeda leader in Iraq complains that the terrorist network is short of cash and faces defeat in Afghanistan, a Pentagon spokesman says.

The United States obtained a recent letter that appears to be from Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s No. 2 figure, to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, outlining both the strategy and concerns of the terrorist network, said Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman.

In the letter, al-Zawahiri warns that some of the tactics currently employed by the insurgency, including the slaughtering of hostages and the suicide bombings of Muslim civilians, may risk alienating the “Muslim masses,” Whitman said Thursday.

Reading from a summary of the letter, Whitman said al-Zawahiri concedes that al Qaeda has lost many key leaders, is resigned to defeat in Afghanistan, and that its lines of communication and funding sources have been seriously disrupted. Al-Zawahiri includes a plea for financial support, indicating he is strapped for money, Whitman said

Now that we’ve heard it “from the horse’s mouth,” I wonder what the donks will have to say. Usually when you have a victory in wartime, politics is set aside and congratulations are conferred upon our troops for a job well done. This would, however, require the Dems to admit that their rhetoric and strategy was flawed. So, let’s just see if the “supporters of our troops” will actually do something more than pay lips service to that ideal.

    But Surfside, didn’t the MSM tell us we could not win and the terrorists were too much for us? Didn’t they tell us that GWB was an idiot and would get all of our children killed?

    We have lost fewer military members in over 2 years than civilians killed on 9/11 and soldiers are supposed to be in harm’s way.

    If we stay the course we will defeat these terrorists. If the left tears us apart with their Cindy SheetHeads and the rest, then we will be doomed.

    As I have said. You don’t have to agree with the war. Just stay out of the way and let the warriors fight it. You can enjoy your freedom at no cost to you, just don’t get in the way of those who will fight for it, for you.

    Great post. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The only memos you get from the MSM are the phony ones from Mapes and Rather.
