This Briefing Book on the WarDoes anyone I know know if this, Raw Story, Republican Talking Points on the War, is real? If it is, America is DOOOOMED. What a load of crap to fill the minds of Congress with. How better to paralyze them with fear, and encourage them to spread that fear? If this was produced by the Pentagon, we need to fire every last mother duffer who touched it, for certainly it is blatant and deadly partisan politics. But what's really freaking sad is that they rely on the Zawahiri-Zarqawi letter of July 2005, which is either (very likely) a forgery or (possible) indicates that Zawahiri and Zarqawi are idiots, and not truly to be feared.
I made sure in my last speech-that Aljazeera broadcast Saturday, 11 Jumadi I, 1426h, 18 June 2005-to mention you, send you greetings, and show support and thanks for the heroic acts you are performing in defense of Islam and the Muslims, but I do not know what Aljazeera broadcast. Did this part appear or not? I will try to attach the full speech with this message, conditions permitting.Facts to consider
- Al-Jazeera is banned from Iraq. Does Zawahiri really not know this? It had happened over a year and a half earlier.
- Does he think Zarqawi sits around all day watching TV? Al-Jazeera in particular? The tone of the letter makes it sound like Zawahiri thinks there is no chance Zarqawi would have missed it.
- Doesn't he have anyone else on Earth he could have asked, asked to find out if the segment in question was aired? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Holy freaking crap this guy has no freaking friends! No friends at all!
