More Briar Patch

Another message from Br'er Rabbit asking us to stay in the Briar Patch just a little while longer.
In a new video posted today on the Internet, al Qaeda's number two man, Ayman al Zawahiri, mocks the bill passed by Congress setting a timetable for the pullout of U.S. troops in Iraq.

"This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap," Zawahiri says in answer to a question posed to him an interviewer.

Continuing in the same tone, Zawahiri says, "We ask Allah that they only get out of it after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, in order that we give the spillers of blood in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson."

Funny that Ole Zawahiri should mention it since rather than ensuring we don't lose that many by supporting a responsible redeployment, the Republicans are just making more room on the wall.

Because if Br'er Bush and Br'er Bin Laden have their way, we're going to need it.

Meme more.

Update: Kathy peruses the right side of Blogtopia so we don't have to and finds that, not surprisingly, the righties think Zawahiri is endorsing their belief that Democrats want to surrender. As I put it in the comments section "It boggles the mind that the righties would try to twist the words [of] a known propagandist to suit their view of the world. And I’m not even talking about Zawahiri."
