Ware Again: Pulling Out of Iraq "Delusional," Would Hand Country To Al Qaeda

The guy has a lot of opinions -- and strong ones -- for a reporter. Cuts both ways -- he called McCain delusional when he said Baghdad was safer.

Always cuts this one way, though: He's always editorializing.

Reporter Kyra Phillips agreed that withdrawal equals victory for Al Qaeda: It would be a disaster."

The left continues its favorite talking point, that the fight in Iraq is not really a fight against Al Qaeda. They continue insisting terror attacks are almost entirely due to indigenous insurgents, despite the rather well-known fact that Al Qaeda is responsible for most of the deaths and mass-bombings, and the inigenous insurgents are trying to restrain Al Qaeda, and even exchange gunfire with them.

It's just too amusing to hear Democrats and liberal media types like Juan Williams insist they're all gung-ho in favor of fighting Al Qaeda... they just don't want to do so in Iraq. To repurpose Dennis Miller's joke, they've decided there are no Al Qaeda in Iraq -- just "Al Kinda."

There's that claim that bin Ladin is actually "directing" Al Qaeda in Iraq, which I think is nonsense for several reasons (like that he's probably dead), but it can't be denied that Al Qaeda itself certainly believes that Al Qaeda in Iraq is part of Al Qaeda. (One supporting bit of evidence: they call themselves Al Qaeda in Iraq.)

And Al Qaeda is greatly heartened by Harry Reid's statement that the war in Iraq is "lost," quoting it in propaganda statements. More thoughts on this from Bryan at Hot Air.

So it seems Al Qaeda thinks Al Qaeda is fighting in Iraq, President Bush thinks Al Qaeda is fighting in Iraq, even reporters think Al Qaeda is fighting in Iraq.

The only people who claim otherwise are anti-war Democrats, determined politically to lose Iraq but not willing to admit they're really not all that interested in fighting Al Qaeda anywhere.
