The leader of a jihadi group in Iraq argued Friday that the election of Barack Obama as president represented a victory for radical Islamic groups that had battled American forces since the invasion of Iraq.
In his address, Mr. Baghdadi also said that the election of Mr. Obama — and the rejection of the Republican candidate, Senator John McCain — was a victory for his movement, a claim that has already begun to resonate among the radical faithful.
Interesting that when Republicans were saying this liberals were getting the vapors. Baghdadi is claiming a victory that isn't his but it's telling that he thinks Obama will pull up stakes as fast as possible and leave Iraq to him and his ilk.
He later calls for a truce with the west. Something you don't do if you're winning. He's on the losing side and trying to boast about anything he can to keep the flame of bloodlust alive with his followers.
