Terrorist tape taunts us not to leave Iraq

According to AP in an article today, "A new video of al-Qaeda's No. 2 leader released on Saturday mocks President Bush and U.S. legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, saying the bill would rob the group's fighters of the chance to kill more Americans."

When al-Qaeda asks you to do something, do the opposite. If they mock us for withdrawing, that is exactly what we need to do. Osama bin Laden's deputy Ayman al-Zawahri taunted Bush today according to AP, "recounting an April 12 suicide bombing in Baghdad's heavily protected Green Zone when an attacker slipped through security and killed a Sunni legislator in the Iraqi parliament's cafeteria. An al-Qaeda-led amalgam of Sunni insurgents in Iraq claimed responsibility.

'And lest Bush worry, I congratulate him on the success of his security plan, and I invite him on the occasion for a glass of juice, but in the cafeteria of the Iraqi parliament in the middle of the Green Zone,' al-Zawahri said."

Looking at the AP Photo above, it looks as though the picture was taken in an educated person's home from the books on the shelves. It is a guess but I would wager it is in Pakistan and this backdrop was used to embarass President Musharraf and anger the U.S., as they continue to use Pakistan as a safe haven.
