    On Al-Qaeda Web Sites, Joy Over U.S. Crisis, Support for McCain


    Al-Qaeda is watching the U.S. stock market's downward slide with something akin to jubilation, with its leaders hailing the financial crisis as a vindication of its strategy of crippling America's economy through endless, costly foreign wars against Islamist insurgents.

    And at least some of its supporters think Sen. John McCain is the presidential candidate best suited to continue that trend.

    "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.

    The Web commentary was one of several posted by Taliban or al-Qaeda-allied groups in recent days that trumpeted the global financial crisis and predicted further decline for the United States and other Western powers. In language that was by turns mocking and ominous, the newest posting credited al-Qaeda with having lured Washington into a trap that had "exhausted its resources and bankrupted its economy." It further suggested that a terrorist strike might swing the election to McCain and guarantee an expansion of U.S. military commitments in the Islamic world.


    "It will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qaeda," said the posting, attributed to Muhammad Haafid, a longtime contributor to the password-protected site. "Al-Qaeda then will succeed in exhausting America."

    It was unclear how closely the commentary reflected the views of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who has not issued a public statement since the spring. Some terrorism experts said the support for McCain could be mere bluster by a group that may have more to fear from a McCain presidency. In any event, the comments summarized what has emerged as a consensus view on extremist sites, said Adam Raisman, a senior analyst for the Site Intelligence Group, which monitors Islamist Web pages. Site provided translations of the comments to The Washington Post.

    "The idea in the jihadist forums is that McCain would be a faithful 'son of Bush' -- someone they see as a jingoist and a war hawk," Raisman said. "They think that, to succeed in a war of attrition, they need a leader in Washington like McCain."

    Islamist militants have generally had less to say about Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. Leaders of the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah expressed a favorable view of Obama during the primary campaign but later rejected the Democrat after he delivered speeches expressing support for Israel.

    Angry Banking on their own destruction.

    McCain may be bad news for a lot of reasons that make al-Qaeda just happy as the Genie let out of the lamp. He is also the kind of nut-case who is capable and dying for a good reason to send enough of our nukes right into North Waziristan near the Afghan border to turn it into glass, which is al-Qaeda central. Pakistan goes nuts, he may nuke them too! But they have nukes! True, a few & so primative we could neutralize them while fueling (a 12 hour job) or in flight, each has it's own U.S. looking-glass satellite 24/7 hovering over them and it's own Predator special weapons packet hovering above or minutes from TOT. Al-Qaeda is rooting for someone capable and crazy enough to wipe out Islam from most parts of the earth regarless of the outcry. C/O an unused and vast U.S. Navy and Air Force mission that runs 24/7 targeting/CAP's on every known A-Q hot-spot. They want to go meet Allah, John might just grant them their wish in a flash all they need to do is attack us again with President McCain opening launch-coded envelopes. Then the fun begins with who wants to take issue about it and how? China? Russia? Or allies that end up with the fall-out drifting over their lands like Japan? And folks wanted to know why I was looking around for good MRE's?

    I have a really hard time believing any of this. Of all the mud that has been slung in the campaign thus far, this is probably the most outrageous.

    Now there's something that has "less" value than "used" toilet paper.

    probally but who knows. And quite frankly who cares cause neither candidate is a terrorist or has terrorist ties. They will both bomb the crap out of them if we have to. I wonder sometimes who gets these stories. Some reporter could just make this crap up you know. Oh well thanks for everybody's comments

    This story looks like something that could appear in the National Enquirer.
