It turns out that Western politicians do not have a monopoly on spin. The leftovers at al-Qaeda in Iraq put a message out on their website today congratulating Abu Musab al-Zarqawi on his great victory today in allowing two bombs to fall on his head. No, I'm not kidding:
As the U.S. military announced Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s death, al-Zarqawi’s lieutenants did the same, with a statement on his own Web site, with a highly positive spin.
“We are bringing the good news of the martyrdom of our Sheikh,” reads the site. “What hit us is a blessing to our nation. ... It will encourage us to continue waging Jihad.”
Jihadi bulletin boards and chat rooms were quickly overwhelmed. Al-Zarqawi’s photo was posted, adorned to glorify his death. One posting said: “Zarqawi’s blood will serve as fuel to burn the invaders and the apostates.”
If that's how they feel about it .... Captain's Quarters would like to ask for Allah's blessings to flow abundantly to each and every one of their lunatic associates, and that the next few weeks bring a flood of similar good news.Sphere It View blog reactions
