Al Qaeda Endorses McCain!

Well, kinda sorta. On a pro-Al Qaeda website this week there was a post that supporters of Al Qaeda would welcome another terrorist attack on the US as a way of "ushering in a McCain presidency":

"This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier," the message said. "Then, al-Qaida [sic] will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush."
"If al-Qaida carries out a big operation against American interests," the message said, "this act will be support of McCain because it will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qaida. Al-Qaida then will succeed in exhausting America till its last year in it."
So while this falls a little short of an official endorsement, it's still an indication that even Al Qaeda recognizes that a McCain presidency would be beneficial to themselves in particular, even though when it comes to the rest of the world, uh...not so much.
