Al-Qaeda Websites Endorse McCain

Original post made by Al-Qaeda for McCain, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Oct 22, 2008

"Al-Qaeda will have to support McCain in the coming election," said a commentary posted Monday on the extremist Web site al-Hesbah, which is closely linked to the terrorist group. It said the Arizona Republican would continue the "failing march of his predecessor," President Bush.

Al Qaeda knows that they are feared and hated in the United States. Thus, they would probably expect Americans to go AGAINST whomever Al Qaeda actually supports. Knowing that, if they do support someone it would make sense for them to claim they are actually supporting his opponent.

In other words, if they want Obama elected, it would be logical for them to officially "support" McCain so that more Americans vote against "Al Qaeda's candidate", here McCain, and for the other candidate, here Obama (too bad 3rd parties are never discussed in this election BTW).

Thus, if they announce they support McCain, it must mean they actually want Obama elected...

Or it could mean that McCain was hobnobbing with Al Qeida in order to get their endorsement--or maybe they sent Palin in to get them behind mcCain

Al-Qaeda endorsed Bush in 2004. Bin Laden released a tape just before the election which Kerry blames for his loss.

You are right. I had forgotten about that. So, maybe they do wish for the US to continue on its path...
