from al-Qaeda.

Just another reminder that the world is watching this election.

Hmmm... that's the original, the content elsewhere is mostly analysis, and the Washington Post doesn't appear to do alternative stable links. Maybe try through google http://www.google.com/search?source=...=Google+Search

It's not from al-Qaeda.

Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.

The message is credited to a frequent and apparently respected contributor named Muhammad Haafid. However, Haafid is not believed to have a direct affiliation with al-Qaida plans or knowledge of its operations, according to SITE.

They don't run our country. We do and we don't do things according to their threats or manipulations.

Because you're smarter than the average bear, Boo-Boo!

Besides, the real al-Qaeda is busy plotting what to do if BHO wins. Gotta make Biden's speech look good.

Actually, the CIA director Jim Woosley has claimed that this is an attempt at reverse psychology. It was long suspected that the video of Osama Bin Laden that was released prior to the 2004 election was done to keep Bush in the office.

So, why would the CIA director acknowledge it if there wasn't truth to it?

You can google Jim Woosley and reverse psychology to hear the discussion on the blogs.

I thought this was interesting, and posted it, not because I think it says anything about either candidate. I posted it because I think people often forget that the whole world has a stake in how we vote and I think for the most part we forget that or don't care.

It might be reverse psychology, it might be reverse-reverse psychology, it might be a plant just so people start talking about al-Qaeda. Doesn't matter, because nobody is going to change their vote on account of this. Food for thought.

In other international opinion news, people (who aren't terrorists) want Obama 4-to-1.

I wonder how much of that is "anti-Bush" sentiment.
