Now Al Qaeda Calls For Timetable For Withdrawal From Iraq

Wait, I'm confused. I've been endlessly assured that Al Qaeda benefits from out presence in Iraq -- "the greatest recruitment tool bin Ladin ever had," etc. -- so I'm baffled why they'd want to end that gravy-train.

THE head of an al-Qaeda-dominated group in Iraq offered to give US troops a month to pull out free of attack in an audiotape posted on the internet overnight and demanded an answer within two weeks.


"We are offering you the opportunity to withdraw your troops in complete safety and we are expecting your response within two weeks,'' said the voice purporting to be that of Baghdadi, leader of a self-proclaimed Islamic emirate in western and north-central Iraq that is dominated by al-Qaeda supporters.

"We appeal to President George W. Bush to seize this historic opportunity which should allow your troops to pull out in safety,'' it said.

Bush has faced intense political pressure to overhaul his Iraq policy, following the rout of his Republican party in mid-term elections, rock-bottom approval of his management of the Iraq war and mounting US combat deaths.

A policy review by the Iraq Study Group, a bi-partisan panel, recommended that all frontline US troops be withdrawn by early 2008.

So the Democrats, James Baker, and Al Qaeda in Iraq all agree -- we must exit Iraq, the sooner the better.

If all of those people agree, what are we waitin' for? 100 million Democrats and 100 million jihadis can't be wrong.

Note the article also claims that Bush attempted to negotiated with AQII through "Saudi representatives," but AQII rebuffed the attempt. This is pure nonsense, but that's also on the tape. There you go.

Question: If Al Qaeda in Iraq and Al Qaeda itself want to negoatiate, isn't that a good sign we shouldn't?

Wouldn't that also suggest we shouldn't negotiate with terror states like Syria and Iran, too?
