Al-Qaida already baiting Obama!
By J.B. Williams
Consistent with U.S. intelligence reports over the past few months, UK news organization The Mirror warns, "America faces a heightened terror threat in the 75 days until Barack Obama takes office, US spy chiefs warned yesterday."
The column goes on, "The CIA and other intelligence agencies gave him his first security briefing - and told him fanatics may try to exploit the period before he enters the White House to attack America."
Their concern was echoed by George Bush, who said outside the White House: "We are facing a struggle against violent extremists determined to attack us. - They would like nothing more than to exploit this period of change to harm the American people."
Unlike previous election cycles in which Osama bin Laden made pre-election miscalculations and tried to sway American voters into tossing arch-enemy George W. Bush from office, al-Qaida leadership remained largely silent as the world awaited the media promoted election of Barack Hussein Obama.
However, once it became clear that their wishes for a new American regime would be granted, al-Qaida wasted no time setting their sites on the new American president-election, refering to him as a "murtad," anyone who leaves Islam and becomes a "traitor" to it through their new beliefs or actions, the penalty for which is death.
Two weeks after the election, al-Qaida second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahri insulted Barack Obama in the terror group's first reaction to his election, calling him a demeaning racial term [house negro] implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites.
A few scenarios are possible:
Based upon past al-Qaida strategies, international terror support for the Obama campaign and al-Qaida's ongoing desire to hit America in a manner promised to dwarf 9/11, the likelihood is scenario number three.
Al-Zawahri also called Obama — along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — "house negroes."
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house negroes," so that no American could misinterpret the message.
The message includes old footage of speeches by Malcolm X in which he explains the term, saying black slaves who worked in their white masters' house were more servile than those who worked in the cotton fields.
"America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always," the deputy of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden said.
He said Obama's plan to shift troops to Afghanistan is doomed to failure, because Afghans will resist. – "Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them,"he said.
For those of you who need it, here's your proof that unilaterally retreating from a war will not end a war. It will only alter the field of battle, in this case moving it from our strategic front in Iraq to the rougher terrain of Afghanistan, Pakistan, or God forbid, America...
66 Million Useful Idiots
Obama voters actually believed that electing Obama would end the war on terror. They actually believed that international terrorism only existed under George Bush and Dick Cheney and that if Obama would just retreat from that war, the world would love America again.
Just for future referrence, let it be known that unilateral retreat has never ended a war. It is a victory for your enemies and breathes new life into their mission. In this case, as you can see from Al-Qaida's post-election commentaries, the other side is not agreeable to ending the war just because Americans were foolish enough to elect a new "messiah" with NO foreign policy or national security experience.
The fight is on... maybe more than ever!
Al-Zawahri did not threaten specific attacks, but warned Obama that he was "facing a Jihadi (holy war) awakening and renaissance which is shaking the pillars of the entire Islamic world; and this is the fact which you and your government and country refuse to recognize and pretend not to see."
He said Obama's victory showed Americans acknowledged that President George W. Bush's policies were a failure and that the result was an "admission of defeat in Iraq."
There you have it!
Direct from the mouths of America's most ardent enemies, American voters conceaded victory in Iraq to Al-Qaida simply by electing Barack Hussein Obama. This is the "sign of weakness" in American resolve that so many conservative leaders and writers warned voters about for months leading up to the election.
Sixty-six million useful idiots fell into the trap set for them by Bin Laden, and now al-Qaida's second-in-command is baiting Obama into retreating from Iraq and sending troops to Afghanistan and Pakistan, where al-Qaida feels it has a strategic upper hand.
Meanwhile, intelligence rooms all over the free world are reading terror chatter and warning America to brace for renewed attacks, now that terrorists have a new American leader whom they believe will capitulate and further withdraw from combat, under pressure from the anti-war voters who put Obama in power.
Expensive Lessons Still Ahead
Proving once again that al-Qaida knows exactly how to manipulate American leftists, Obama left his first security briefing as president-elect and traded his centrist sounding "change" for a cabinet full of left-wing former Clinton cronies. Now that it is clear even to Obama, that he is in way over his head, he is seeking to surround himself with "experienced" folks who unlike himself, have looked into the eye of evil before.
But the former Clinton folks he is surrounding himself with, looked into those eyes throughout the 90's and did nothing to stop the events of 9/11. Their highest priority is to close Gitmo, fly known terrorists to U.S. soil, give them U.S. citizen civil rights and access to criminal courts, and hire OJ's dream team to defend them at taxpayer expense...
Obama supporters think that the war was started by Bush. But al-Qaida's war on America started with the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, followed by an attack on U.S. soldiers in Somalia in October of 1993.
Then they hit a U.S. military base in Saudi Arabia in 1996, called for a "fatwa" against all U.S. citizens in February of 1998, bombed U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in August of 98' and hit the USS Cole in the harbor of Yemen in 2000.
The events of 9/11 were plotted in 1996, and let go by Clinton and Reno Assistant AG Jamie Gorelick in 2000, until the plan came to full fruition on September 11, 2001.
Although the Bush administration has used offense to avert any further attacks on U.S. soil since, that is soon to "change." Obama has promised to "change" Bush's aggressive offensive strategy and return to the defensive Clinton strategy of "containment."
Al-Qaida's al-Zawahri has taken the first step in baiting Obama into keeping his campaign promise to retreat from the chosen front in Iraq. An effort that is very likely to work with an administration which plans a defensive rather than offensive strategy to begin with.
As the international intelligence community agrees, under a "changed" U.S. national security policy, future attacks on U.S. soil and U.S. interests are not a matter of "if," but "when."
Mr. Chertoff said security agencies were now on heightened alert as he warned of the grave threat of a terror atrocity against the US. - He said: "We have put into effect some additional measures. We are looking very carefully at anything that might be a vulnerability, recognizing that we can't guarantee against bad things happening."
But it is exactly the kind of "change" Americas enemies were praying Allah would bring to America...
