Al-Qaida's Narrative of Doubt

Wednesday, October 11, 2006
"Several declassified al-Qaida documents -- one discovered after the June 2006 air strike that killed al-Qaida's Iraqi emir, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- strongly suggest al-Qaida's leaders fear they are losing the War on Terror."

Yes, and unfortunately the new head of al Qaeda in Iraq, al-masri, is following zawahiri's advice and trying to consolidate the insurgentt groups under his umbrella.

Zarqawi felt the insurgent groups (made up of Iraqis) were too cowardly and whiny to work with. :)

But we're on top of it. The political process is subsuming more than al Qaeda is.

Al Q is very aware that turning the Iraqis away from democracy and towards them is an uphill battle. And yes they're losing. Hasn't stopped them from continuing to try, however.

I think if we're able to kill al-masri, it might really be a turning point.
