Today, another tape was released by al-Qaeda. As you read this article, keep in mind that al-Qaeda is in Iraq.
We can talk about withdrawal and troop reduction, but the evidence is clear- we have an enemy in Iraq that needs to be defeated.
Whether or not we want to face this fact or not- the people that killed 3000 innocent Americans on 9/11 are in Iraq.
The deputy leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri, told the United States on Wednesday that it was negotiating with the wrong people in Iraq, strongly implying in a video broadcast on Al-Jazeera that Washington should be talking to his terror group.
"I want to tell the Republicans and the Democrats together ... you are trying to negotiate with some parties to secure your withdrawal, but these parities won't find you an exit (from Iraq) and your attempts will yield nothing but failure," al-Zawahri said on the tape, sections of which were aired in successive news bulletins.
This is not a Republican or a Democrat problem, this is an American problem.
