Zawahiri: Blame Al Qaeda for Wall Street Woes

Terrorists want to take responsibility for the financial crunch.

Hey, good news for Alan Greenspan, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and those Wall Street quants who never figured housing prices could plunge across the country: America's financial fiasco isn't your fault. At least that's the claim of Ayman al-Zawahiri. Al Qaeda's #2 has this to say about the credit crisis:

"This crisis is one of ... the series of American economic hemorrhages after the strikes of September 11... And these ... will continue as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues. The ones shouldering the burden are taxpayers, whose money was spent to rescue senior capitalists and to protect the fraudulent interest-based system from collapse."

Me: I really love it that these murderers of average Americans try to reach out to average Americans by looking out for them as taxpayers. Oh, and I might think more highly of Al Qaedanomics if they didn't want to take us back to the boom times of the 7th century.  Current betting market odds of Osama Bin Laden being captured or killed by next summer? A far-too-low 16 percent.
