Speaker Pelosi + Ayman al-Zawahiri = 2

On Thursday Speaker Pelosi and Ayman al-Zawahiri both made statements.
It is weird how they both appear to be aiming at the same target.

Thursday April 3, 2008–
Al-Qaeda’s deputy leader Ayman al- Zawahiri on Iraq:

“First: I expect the Jihadi influence to spread after the Americans’ exit from Iraq, and to move towards Jerusalem (with Allah’s permission). As for the militias mentioned, they have failed to eliminate the Jihad with the help of what is called the strongest power in the history of mankind.”

Thursday April 3, 2008–
Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi on Iraq:

What I hope we don’t hear from General Petraeus next week is any glorification of what has just happened in Basra and a presentation that says that the Iraqi forces went in there, did the job, violence is diminished, mission accomplished… So we have to know the real ground truth of what is happening there, not put a shine on events because of the resolution that looks less violent.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has sounded like an al-Zawahiri spokesperson.

Pelosi and Zawahiri are both committed on Iraq.
…They are both committed on America losing Iraq.

More… Senator Biden calls the Bush surge a failure.

UPDATE: Here’s the video of Pelosi saying there is no Al-Qaeda in Iraq.
