Despite Pelosi's Sadness Al Qaeda Has Active Weekend in Iraq

It wasn’t that long ago…
Back on November 28, 2006, Speaker Pelosi chastised the president for claiming that Al Qaeda was fomenting violence in Iraq:

“My thoughts on the president’s representations are well-known,” Pelosi said. “The 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again.”

(The 9-11 report never said such a thing about Al Qaeda fomenting violence in Iraq, by the way.)

HotAir captured the video. Here is a condensed clip of the remarks by the Speaker:

This weekend Al Qaeda in Iraq killed at least 5 US soldiers and kidnapped another 3 US soldiers near Mahmoudiya.


It was also announced that Al Qaeda in Iraq is going to take over the Sunni heartland of Iraq and turn it into a militant Islamic state once American troops have withdrawn.

In a separate statement… Al Qaeda in Iraq said it would “remain a thorn in Bush’s gorge.”

And… Al Qaeda in Iraq announced that its pressure campaign on Bush is going to coincide with the pressures from the Democrats.

Can we expect a another statement by the Speaker?
