Al Qaeda Warns Obama

As Obama suits up for the White House, everyone is trying to influence his agenda. Even Al Qaeda. “If you still want to be stubborn about America's failure in Afghanistan, then remember the fate of Bush and Pervez Musharraf, and the fate of the Soviets and British before them,” said Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda’s number two, in a taped message. He then added a lyrical flourish, “And be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them." Al-Zawahiri went on to say that Obama “was the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X and compared Obama, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice, to “house slaves.”
