Iraqi Insurgents Favored Bush Over Kerry

From the Associated Press (Via Randy MI's Diary at The Daily Kos):

"Two French journalists who were held hostage in Iraq told a British documentary program that their captors believed George W. Bush's re-election as US president would help radicalize Iraqis.

Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot, who were seized in August and released after four months, told the British Broadcasting Corp.'s 'Panorama' program that they were allowed to interview the leader of an Islamic militant cell within the group that seized them.

'We felt we were on planet bin Laden,' Malbrunot said on the program, which airs Wednesday night.

The cell leader trained with terror leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan and told them the insurgents supported a Bush presidency because they believed it meant that 'there will be confrontation, occupation and radicalization of the Iraqi people,' Malbrunot said. "

Terrorists favor George W. Bush, oh yes they do. This preznit surely will keep us safer from terrorism. Or maybe he'll help recruit thousands new terrorists to the jihadi cause and aggravate an already intense resentment of America abroad. Hard to tell, ain't it?

If the United States wants to win the War on Terror, perhaps Americans should elect a few less demagogues and a few more statesmen who understand that the War on Terror is a battle of ideas and philosophies that cannot be won by torturing terror suspects or rendering them to Egypt to be tortured and murdered by our "allies."

I don't think the Elaine LaMangas of the country are smart enough to see that though.
