Al Qaeda's Zawahri jeers at Iraq funding

In a stunning reversal, al Qaeda’s #2 man no longer supports the Demcrats’ withdrawal plans. Reuters reports:

In a new Internet video, Osama bin Laden’s second-in-command jeers at the Iraq war funding bill vetoed by President George W. Bush that called for a U.S. troop pullout in Iraq, ABC News said on Saturday.

“This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap,” al Qaeda deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri is quoted as saying on ABC’s Web site, http://abcnews.go.com/.

“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,” Zawahri says.
