Al Qaeda have restated their intentions. Problem is, is anyone listening?
Al-Qaeda's Iraq chief threatened in an audio message posted on the Internet that the terror network will "blow up the White House."
"We announce today the end of a phase of the jihad (holy war) and the start of a new one... to usher in the project of an Islamic caliphate and restore Islam's glory," Abu Hamza al-Muhajer said in the message.
"We swear we will not rest from our jihad... before blowing up the filthiest house, dubbed the White House," in the course of establishing the caliphate which began with the proclamation of an Islamic state in Iraq, he said.
So, can someone from the Democrats please tell me how retreating from Iraq, or stopping supporting Israel, or withdrawing troops from bases in Saudi Arabia, will stop Al Qaeda from, in their very own words, establishing a caliphate?
