John McCain isn't boasting about a new endorsement, one of the very, very few he has received from overseas. It came a few days ago:
"Al-Qaida will have to support McCain in the coming election," read a commentary on a password-protected Islamist Web site that is closely linked to al-Qaida and often disseminates the group's propaganda.
The endorsement left the McCain campaign sputtering, and noting helplessly that Hamas appears to prefer Barack Obama. Al-Qaida's apparent enthusiasm for McCain is manifestly not reciprocated.
"The transcendent challenge of our time [is] the threat of radical Islamic terrorism," McCain said in a major foreign policy speech this year, adding, "Any president who does not regard this threat as transcending all others does not deserve to sit in the White House." - Seattle Pi
This was just a liberal scare tactic!
