Now, just in case the link here doesn’t work, then I copied and pasted the complete story below, as I got it from Yahoo news.com this morning, and it is a story from Reuters:

DUBAI (Reuters) – Al-Qaeda’s second in command Ayman al-Zawahri said a U.S. congressional bill calling for a troop withdrawal from Iraq was proof of Washington’s defeat, according to a Web video posted on Saturday.
“This bill reflects American failure and frustration,” Zawahri said. “But this bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap.” My my my, cocky aren’t we? Are you beginning to see why this bill that our representatives wrought was the wrong thing to do?
A White House spokesman declined to comment on the video, which comes four days after U.S. President George W. Bush vetoed a $124 billion congressional war-spending measure that would have required a troop pullout from Iraq to begin by October 1. But wait people. This whole thing from our enemies gets better. It goes on to say…..
“We ask Allah that they only get out after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, so that we give the blood spillers in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson to motivate them to review their entire doctrinal and moral system,” Zawahri said on the video, posted on Web sites used by Islamists. You notice don’t you, that the news agencies always have these web sites that say these things on, but they never give out the web sites addresses, so that the average American can go there and see what they are actually saying about us? I bet most of the stuff is much worse.
Zawahri denied that al-Qaeda and other Sunni Muslim insurgents were stirring up sectarian strife in Iraq, blaming instead the Shi’ite-led Baghdad government.
“The ones who have stirred up strife in Iraq are those who today are begging the Americans not to leave,” said the white-turbaned Zawahri, sitting next to bookshelves and an assault rifle.
Zawahri mocked Bush for saying that a U.S. backed security plan for Baghdad was showing signs of success..
“The success is only for his pocket and Halliburton,” he said, referring to the company once headed by Vice President Dick Cheney. You notice that they are still pushing on that one even though Cheney has nothing to do with Halliburton anymore….
Zawahri also called on African-American soldiers to refuse to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, saying America had only changed the “appearance of the shackles and chains” of their slave forefathers.
Zawahri repeatedly praised Black Muslim leader Malcolm X on the video which included footage of the American militant’s speeches, interspersed with documentary scenes of police action against blacks in the 1960′s and poor blacks in urban ghettos.
Zawahri’s last public comments were on March 11, when he criticized the leadership of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas over its Saudi-brokered deal with the U.S.-backed Palestinian faction Fatah.
In the new video, the Egyptian cleric renewed his criticism of Hamas and other Islamist groups for adopting a more moderate “culture of compromise.”
Now people, if that doesn’t scare some sense into you, I do not know what will. This man is the second in command of al-Qaeda. He is like Vice President Cheney, in position, though he most likely holds much more power than Cheney ever did.
People, this is scary. We have to stop this movement. The Democraps are doing everything they can to make us lose the war. The war that is imperative that we win, and if you can’t see that we have to win, then go back and re read the news story above! This is stuff that past generations would have been up in arms about. Past generations of politicians too. But not our politicians. They are all too damned scared of their own shadows to do the right thing. And we are running out of time to do the right thing. Quickly. We need to set up and set this whole thing straight, starting with our so called representatives in Washington, who do not represent us at all, but only represent themselves. The time is now people. This is a fight we have to win, and we have to start winning it soon….or we will find ourselves in a country that none of us will like. Women will lose all their freedoms. Government will be dictatorial, and we will have nothing to say about the laws of our own country. Do you like the sound of that? I know I don’t.
