"Some look at the challenges in Iraq, and conclude that the war is lost, and not worth another dime or another day. I don't believe that. Our military commanders don't believe that. Not even the terrorists believe it. We know from their own communications that they feel a tightening noose -- and fear the rise of a democratic Iraq." George W Bush-- DECEMBER 19, 2005, Speaking after Iraqi elections
Al Qaeda No. 2 Mocks Iraq Pullout Bill

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."
Question- Who is it that is "aiding and abetting", "giving comfort to", "playing by the enemys' rulebook", "encouraging the enemy" or "emboldening the enemy"?
The enemy seems alot happier than we are.
