Signs of Progress

I was reading this article on coverage the Arab media has been giving to recent statements by al-Quaeda's top leadership. The part of the article that caught my eye was a quote from an Iraqi journalist:

But the credit for that goes to the sacrifice of the Iraqi people... It will never go to al-Qaeda under the leadership of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, who appeared in his televised message to be thirsty, like a leech, for the blood of Iraqis, as well as haughty, stupid and lacking any connection to reality, just like George Bush junior.

So, in the minds of the Iraqis, our leader is, at least, no worse than one of the world's most renowned terrorists. Sigh.
