Osama Wanted Bush Reelected?

During the run-up to the 2004 elections, the Democratic Party and their MsM rump swabs made the point that Osama bin Laden actually wanted George W. Bush to be reelected, since Bush's war in Iraq served to drive new recruits into bin Laden's camp, thereby strengthening the Al Qaeda movement.

How killing and detaining Islamists, boxing-in their leaders, destroying their communication structure and robbing them of their finances strengthens their cause is anyone's guess, but leave it to the Left to float such illogic, especially when desperate to install a self-serving fraud into the Oval Office.

As it turns out, O.B.L. most certainly did not want Bush reelected, as the following NY Daily News article implies:

"WASHINGTON - Before he was captured last spring, Osama Bin Laden's top operational commander was solely focused on killing President Bush and Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharaff, the Daily News has learned.

The capture last May of Al Qaeda's No. 3 leader, Abu Faraj Al-Libi, apparently thwarted plots to assassinate the two partners in the global war on terror, said a senior Pakistani official, whose information was corroborated by two senior U.S. counterterrorism officials.

'Al-Libi had one mission: Kill Bush and Musharraf,' the Pakistani official told The News. 'He wanted to kill Bush in the White House, preferably.'

'It was clearly something they wanted to do. There's no question about that. It's the holy grail of jihad,' a senior U.S. counterterrorism official confirmed." MORE
