Al Qaeda Hates Obama, Too

Remember that pesky "but the terrorists want Obama to win" argument from the election? It's settled: Al Qaeda hates Obama, too. To combat his international popularity the group has launched a full-blown propaganda attack, hurling insults like "house negro," "hypocrite," and "enemy to Muslims." The Washington Post reports the attacks constitute "a deliberate, even desperate, propaganda campaign against a president who appears to have gotten under al-Qaeda's skin. The departure of George W. Bush deprived al-Qaeda of a polarizing American leader who reliably drove recruits and donations to the terrorist group."
