AS MICHAEL LIND COULD TELL HIM...:

Add Al Qaeda To Those Feeling Duped By Obama: Lefties, righties, middle class and now terrorists (ROBERT A. GEORGE, 8/04/09, NBC Philadelphia)

Al-Zawahri criticized Obama's effort to ease tensions with Muslims aggravated by predecessor George W. Bush, who waged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in 2001 and 2003.

"He is like a wolf whose fangs are ripping through your (Muslims) flesh and his claws grabbing your face and both are dripping with your blood, then he says stop your defense because he wants peace with you."

"Obama is trying to sell illusions to the ... weak," al-Zawahri said of Obama's drive. "He is trying to say do not hate us .... but we will continue to kill you."

The disappointment in al-Zawahri is clearly palpable. He feels personally betrayed by Obama adopting attitudes that are seemingly in America's best interests -- not al Qaeda's! Obama, it seems, is proving to be a classic dishonest politician -- "one who doesn't stay bought" (or, in this case, programmed).


...Zawahiri ought not blame the UR for being Bush Lite, he's just a prisoner of neoliberalism.
