al Qaeda in Iraq NO myth
Perpetuating the al-Qaeda-Iraq Myth.By ROBERT BAER.... TIME
.....A friend of mine at the White House complained to me the other day that the Bush administration and the Pentagon until this day believe we are fighting al-Qaeda in Iraq.
They ignore the fact that although a handful of Osama bin Laden's followers showed up in Iraq after the invasion, in a futile attempt to hijack the Sunni resistance, al-Qaeda is not the main enemy in that country.
It should be clear by now, but apparently it isn't: al-Qaeda is an idea, a way of thinking. Al-Qaeda thinks the world is divided between believers and nonbelievers, and the believers are divinely obliged to destroy the nonbelievers.....
Using his own argument he is not consistent, "al-Qaeda is an idea, a way of thinking."
Then if someone is thinking that way they are al Qaeda by his own definition.
I just don't know what to say,
the post denys all the facts. "al qaeda in Iraq" the groups name says it all.
Have they for got Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's beheadings, or the letters fro Bin Laden to Z.
The announcements from al Qaeda about their ops in Iraq.
These statements about al Qaeda not being in Iraq are not related to reality, news or critical thinking.
Now that they have been beaten back someone denys they were there?
Maybe Bob is in Denial?
