    I did not mean Cindy Crackpot Sheehan or White Flag Harry Reid


    Al-Qaeda Loses an Iraqi Friend
    By BOBBY GHOSH/BAGHDAD

    Al-Qaeda has lost its most powerful friend in Iraq: Harith al-Dari, the country's most influential Sunni cleric and a prominent anti-American figure, has rejected al-Qaeda's vision of an Islamic state, telling TIME that Iraqis "will not accept such a system." In a sharp departure from his long-standing view of the terror group, al-Dari now says al-Qaeda has "gone too far." He also repudiates recent statements on Iraq by Osama bin Laden's deputy, saying: "Ayman al-Zawahiri doesn't represent Iraqis."

    But al-Dari's change of heart on al-Qaeda is not necessarily good news for the Bush Administration. The Sunni cleric remains an implacable foe of the U.S. occupation, and of the Shi'ite-led Iraqi government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. He is dismissive of the "surge" in Baghdad, insisting that no solution to Iraq's problems is possible while American troops remain — and rejects as "insincere and meaningless" al-Maliki's efforts to reach out to the Sunnis.

    I knew this would make the liberals very sad.

    Why don't you post the US troop death toll? That'll cheer you up.

    I was just wondering because I've noticed that too, but far be it from me to really know that. And that is why I asked the question that you actually answered unlike some other posters.
