YOU'RE A FAILURE, PLEASE RELEASE MY COMRADES...:

Zawahiri Attacks Bush in New Video Posted on Web (AP, September 29, 2006)

The deputy leader of Al Qaeda called President Bush a failure and a liar in the war on terror in a video statement released Friday, and he compared Pope Benedict XVI to the 11th century pontiff who launched the First Crusade. [...]

Al-Zawahiri also criticized Bush for continuing to imprison Al Qaeda leaders in prisons, including Al Qaeda No. 3 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged Sept. 11 mastermind who was captured in Pakistan in March 2003.


W launched the Crusade--the Church is a johnny-come-lately.

Al-Zawahiri should air his tape a week before the mid term election. He will definitely have the same effect as Binnie's pronouncement in 2004. Btw, where in hell is Binnie? We kind of miss him.

I know: W even called it a crusade when he launched it, right after 9-11. The man really knows how to say the two little words.

JP II's weak-kneed criticisms of the war on terror will be a blot on his papacy.

John F. Kerry couldn't have said it better. But his tirades were usually laced with profanity. I suppose Zawahiri doesn't indulge.
