Because it's true. Al-queda and the MSM are united in their opposition to the war in Iraq. There is no reason to escalate the situation when it's going the way they want it to.

No worries, on the West Bank, there's still Hamas TV:

And in the US, there's surreal op/eds being churned out by our own citizens:

WASHINGTON — Here's what the Bush administration has done to the values, traditions and honor of the United States of America: An accused terrorist claims he confessed to heinous crimes so that agents of the U.S. government would stop torturing him, and no one is shocked or even surprised. There's reason to believe, in fact, that what the suspect says about torture is probably true.

There's also reason to doubt that the suspect — Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, held in U.S. custody without charges for more than four years — is the Zelig-like innocent bystander he claims to be. But we can't be sure, because George W. Bush disgraced himself and his country by ordering extrajudicial kidnappings of war-on-terror suspects, indefinite secret detention, and interrogation by "alternative" methods that the civilized world calls torture.

Last Friday, the Defense Department released a heavily redacted transcript of a March 14 hearing, held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to determine whether Nashiri should be classified as an "enemy combatant." I apologize for resorting to cliché, but the only way to describe this amazing, infuriating document is to call it Orwellian. Reading it gives you the chills.

Reading THAT should "give you the chills". The left are so delusional that are dangerous unless they are marginilized. "Eugene Robinson" can't see past his hatred of the Bush administration and takes this:

Al-Nashiri was propelled into al-Qaeda's senior leadership after the success of the USS Cole bombing.

He joined his cousins and uncles in militant Islam after completing intermediate school in Saudi Arabia. He took part in Khattab's insurgencies in Tajikstan and Chechnya and became a trainer at Khalden camp in Afghanistan in 1992.

Accompanied by Tawfiq bin Attash, he first met bin Laden in the mid-1990s, but al-Nashiri initially refused to pledge loyalty to him because he found the idea distateful.

In 1997, he joined the Taliban and later began work for al-Qaeda. He and his cousin Azzam were tasked to smuggle Russian AT-3 Sagger antitank missiles into Saudi Arabia to use against American targets there. The attack did not take place.

In late 1998, he was tasked by bin Laden to attack an oil tanker off the coast of Yemen. This plot was modified in 1999 to a U.S. Navy warship. Nashiri's operatives failed on their first attempt when an overloaded bomb boat sank in January 2000, but the Cole attack 10 months later succeeded.

His cousin Azzam was the suicide bomber at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1998.

An associate described him as utterly committed to al-Qaeda, suggesting he "would commit a terrorist act 'in Mecca inside the Ka'aba itself' (the holiest site on Islam) if he believed there was a need to do so."

At the time of Nashiri's arrest, he was involved in a number of plots, including one to crash a small plane into the bridge of a U.S. or allied warship in the United Arab Emirates.

He was one of 14 key al-Qaeda operatives and associates transferred from CIA custody to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2006.
