In case you hadn’t heard, Sen. McCain has received an endorsement from a group that NO ONE wants to be endorsed by… al Qa*d*.
Posted earlier this week on the password-protected al-Hesbah Web site, the terrorist group has some thoughts about the looming election and, in effect, throws their support behind Sen. McCain.
From the post;
“This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier. […] Then, al-Qa*d* will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush. […] If al-Qa*d* carries out a big operation against American interests, this act will be support of McCain because it will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qa*d*. Al-Qa*d* then will succeed in exhausting America till its last year in it.”
Not surprisingly the McPalin camp is, shall we say, frenetic about the “endorsement.”
Unfortunately there’s no way to tell how or what al-Qa*d* could do or even what they’re capable of doing at this point… but they’ve tried to influence elections before, witness the Madrid bombings before the Spanish elections and the October 2004 bin Laden tape that the CIA thinks was released in order to boost “President” Bush’s re-election.
