Who's Doing Osama's Bidding?

by Mary

The latest outrage to hit the airwaves from the VRWC is the charge that Democrats criticizing Bush is feeding Osama Bin Laden his talking points. The implication is that the traitorous Democrats are in league with al Qaeda.

The Rightwing ought to ask why it is that Bush has done such a good job of actually doing what Bin Laden wanted him to do.

Al-Qaeda has succeeded in several of its main goals. It had been trying to convince Muslims that the United States wanted to invade Muslim lands, humiliate Muslim men, and rape Muslim women. Most Muslims found this charge hard to accept. The Bush administration's Iraq invasion, along with the Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal, was perceived by many Muslims to validate bin Laden's wisdom and foresight.

On one hand the charge is that Bin Laden is using Democratic criticisms to refine his arguments. But if you look at what's actually happening on the ground, it seems like Bush is doing what Bin Laden wanted him to do. Who is more likely to be the bigger fool? And who is one more closely aligned with promoting al Qaeda's long term goals?
