Who knows if posting this rewrite of a NATO press release is good or bad?

I think that was a very reassuring statement from Al-Qaeda. We have to remember that war is hell, and people get hurt; there's no point in being a bunch of pacifists, is there? I mean, that's a very nice ideal, but in the real world, those who are defending our freedom have to get their hands a little dirty now and then.

We also have to remember that we live in the real world, not the idealistic fantasy that a bunch of you liberals dream of. I'm sure the leaders of Al-Qaeda wish that they could go along with the surrender-monkey faction and just bend over to the enemy. But there are factions, internal conflicts, and the hard-liners won't give the good AQ leadership a moments' peace. Why, they might be assassinated, just like JFK. So they have to play eleven-dimensional chess. We have to have faith.

Finally, I'm pleased to have this confirmation that 9/11 was an "inside job." See, it says that "ammunition and explosives" had been stored inside the target. It's not AQ's fault that the structures collapsed; it's the terrorists who used innocent civilians as human shields. Who wouldn't trust Al Qaeda?

I know, but I'm not telling.
