....Interesting. And this from Brian Ross of ABC News, who reneged on his original claim that there were White House officials in that 14,000 person black book belonging to the DC madam. I'm just sayin'...

Boy, al-Zawahiri couldn't have served up Republican talking points better if he was on Grover Norquist's fax distribution list, could he? And the timing...isn't it amazing how al Qaeda videos seem to come out just when Republican backs are against the wall?

In a new video posted today on the Internet, al Qaeda's number two man, Ayman al Zawahiri, mocks the bill passed by Congress setting a timetable for the pullout of U.S. troops in Iraq.

"This bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap," Zawahiri says in answer to a question posed to him an interviewer.

Continuing in the same tone, Zawahiri says, "We ask Allah that they only get out of it after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, in order that we give the spillers of blood in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson."
