Clarke: Al Qaeda May Try To Tilt Election To McCain

Click to Read

Clarke: Al Qaeda May Try to Tilt Election to McCain John Kerry believes that the so-called al Qaeda Halloween videotape released days before the last presidential election in the United States affected enough undecided voters that it may have made the difference in the outcome. Opinion polls, which al Qaeda reads closely, suggest that an attack would help McCain. Polls in Europe and the Middle East also suggest an overwhelming popular support there for Barack Obama. Al Qaeda would not like it if there were a popular American president again.

I can understand that Al Qaeda doean't want a popular president with the Europeans, but I think that would be the only reason they have to not have Obama. We'll see what happens in late October. As far as the Kerry comment, that sounds to me like he just has sour grapes about that. His numbers were falling fast, and there was nothing he could do.

Well, Dave, if this is true, it would seem to disprove the whole "Obama is a friend of terrorists, terrorists like him better, and terrorists would rather have him win" line of thinking that's been used against him, wouldn't it? ;?

I don't see why they would want Americans to vote for McCain. If Obama wins, he plans to get our troops out of the middle east in the next 16 months. Isn't that supposedly what Al Qaeda wants? Oh wait, that isn't what Al Qaeda wants. They want us dead.

Even if they tried to tilt it by come up with some lame video(LIEK OMG WTF???), we've learned from the past(I would hope!) and see where falling for that little trick got us. NEVER AGAIN. John McCain following Bin Laden to the gates of hell? Laughable.

Oh -- you mean the war that McCain supported didn't take this guy out so he's STILL on the loose. Hummm -- interesting.
