al-Qaida in Iraq Offers USA One Month Ceasefire To Leave Iraq

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of Islamic State of Iraq, believed to be an Al-Qaeda-linked militant group, has offered U.S. troops a one-month truce for withdrawing from Iraq.

In a twenty minute audio tape appearing on an Islamic website Friday, al-Baghdadi, who claimed that 70 percent of Sunni Muslim tribes in Iraq were supporters of his group, said, "We are offering you the opportunity to withdraw your troops in complete safety and we are expecting your response within two weeks."

Al-Baghdadi continued on to say, "We appeal to President George W. Bush to seize this historic opportunity which should allow your troops to pull out in safety."

Well, this makes me even more inclined to believe that Al-Qaeda does not want us to leave.

After all, as long as we remain we give them a "common enemy" around which to rally support, que non?

They had to know that if there were any chance at all of our pulling out, them issuing a statement like this would eliminate any possibility of it happening.

Sounds like they were worried about public pressure over here causing us to "change the course". Our current course is all to their benefit, think about it.
