AL-QAEDA WANTS THE U.S. IN IRAQ.

AL-QAEDA WANTS THE U.S. IN IRAQ. Marc Lynch asks why so few in the media seem to have mentioned this. In a letter purportedly from a top al-Qaeda leader to the organization's Iraqi branch, the author writes:

Indeed, prolonging the war is in our interest, with God's permission.

Think about that.

The full text of the letter, translated by the excellent Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, is available in PDF format here.
