In a report yesterday, CNN's Kelli Arena said:
[...] there is some speculation that al Qaeda believes it has a better chance of winning in Iraq if John Kerry is in the White House.
In the Leftist opium dens of the blogosphere, this comment is causing quite a hostile reaction. But why?
Because even the Communist News Network seems to be conceding the fact that terrorists are operating in Iraq and, even worse, that they are hoping to install Kerry in the White House through their violence. They know he's got to work to placate the anti-war Left (as he did when he cast his "protest vote" against the $87 billion supplemental, basically contradicting his own vote in support of military action), so a vote for John Kerry is a vote for those who hate America. How much clearer can it be?
Arena also observed:
Al Qaeda affiliates attacked Spain just before its elections in March. Some suggest that cemented an overwhelming win for the socialist party.
As well as this:
The attack did result in Spain pulling its troops out of Iraq. Experts say the less Western influence in Iraq, the better for al Qaeda.
It's a real measure of the anti-war Left's moral depravity that they find themselves denying the existence of terrorists in Iraq but that, whoever it is that's exploding IEDs and car-bombs in the middle of crowds of innocent people, it is a good thing for their side because it weakens the President. How disgusting.
Of course al-Qaedists want Bush defeated come November. They know they'd get a better deal with Kerry. There's no question about that. But the Left wants you to believe otherwise.
