WASHINGTON – Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.
The message, posted Monday on the password-protected al-Hesbah Web site, said if al-Qaida wants to exhaust the United States militarily and economically, “impetuous” is the better choice because he is more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier,” the message said. “Then, al-Qaida will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush.”- AP/Yahoo News
In holding with the strategy Osama bin Laden has pushed for over a decade in his war against the United States an Al-Qaida linked website is reportedly choosing John McCain over Barack Obama for President because he will “continue the failed policies of Bush”.
Those who pay close attention to the speeches of bin Laden know he wishes to bankrupt America by executing a plan where America over-extends itself in a “global war on terrorism”.
SITE was struck by the message’s detailed analysis — and apparent jubilation — about American financial woes.
“What we try to do is get the pulse of the jihadist community,” Raisman said. “And it’s about the financial crisis.” - AP/Yahoo News
