Osama votes Republican.

NYTimes:
A high Qaeda official in American custody was identified as a likely fabricator months before the Bush administration began to use his statements as the foundation for its claims that Iraq trained Al Qaeda members to use biological and chemical weapons...

...the February 2002 report said. "Ibn al-Shaykh has been undergoing debriefs for several weeks and may be describing scenarios to the debriefers that he knows will retain their interest."

This week we have heard about torture being used in secret prisons. It has been known that coercive interrogation gets answers that the questioner wants to hear, not necessarily the truth. Numerous overturned convictions, based on police interrogation confessions, are proof of that. And now we have proof that coercive interrogation in the Global War on Terror gives bad information (bad, of course, in not being the truth; perhaps good for the purposes of the Bush administration).

The other option is that top Al Queda officials were not simply giving the questioners what they wanted to hear, but instead the information was part of an Al Queda plan to encourage the U.S. to attack Iraq.

It has already been show that Bush and Co. have been the tool of Chalibi and Iran, now they are the tool of Osama himself.

The Iraq War II has been a victory for the "evil-doers" of Iran and Al Queda: they have gotten the United States to use hundreds of billions of dollars to remove a secular dictator and pave the way for civil war and theocracy. All the while, Al Queda recruiting is up and U.S. army recruiting is down. They are willing to blow themselves up for free, we depend on high school graduates whose few skills include playing the U.S. Army on-line game.

Al Queda didn't just hijack some airliners, they got the whole Department of Defense working for them.
