The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend

Anti-Bush Partisans For Terrorists, Zawahiri Letter Edition

It's not surprising that al Qaeda claims that the recently released letter from Ayman al-Zawahiri to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is a fake. The information in the letter is so damaging that it would be surprising if they didn't try to question its authenticity.

What's truly disturbing is that many left wing Americans are hoping the letter is fake, simply because they hate President Bush.

Take this post from a popular liberal blog, the Whiskey Bar:
Even without the tip offs, I'd have my own suspicions about the letter's authenticity, if only because of the timing. The thing was leaked to the media last Thursday -- the same day as Shrub's big speech on terrorism, which by some strange coincidence, happened to be the exact same day that Hizzonor the Mayor announced the alleged New York subway plot, which has since been revealed as a hoax.
Partisan politics is one thing. Cheering on terrorists in the hope of raising your party's political future is something else. Something awfully close to treason.
