This letter has the potential to be a bombshell.
It says
  • They know they're losing
  • We're winning
  • There is a connection between Iraq & binLaden
  • The Iraqis don't hate us
  • We're winning
  • Al Qieda is losing

The memo says extremists are failing to enlist support inside the country, and have been unable to scare the Americans into leaving. It even laments Iraq's lack of mountains in which to take refuge.

When the Shiite hits the fan because the U.S. won't allow "actual " elections they now have someone/something to blame ,instead of admitting they were wrong from the begining about believing they would be welcomed with open arms.I have to admit ,they are getting better at strategy though in seeing the outcome and creating an alibi .

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said that the letter, first reported Monday by The New York Times, shows that ''Iraq is the central front in the war on terrorism.''

I missed that...is it in the story?
from the boston globe article you linked to...

That suggests that Iraqis may be willing to support their homegrown insurgency but have little interest in backing foreign infiltrators. The letter's appeals for outside help raises questions whether al-Qaida had a support network here before Saddam's downfall. There is little to bind Iraqi rebels to foreign terrorists other than a common wish ''to bloody the United States,'' said David L. Phillips, a former State Department expert on Iraq, now with the Council on Foreign Relations. ''There are far more Iraqis who are resisting American occupation than there are al-Qaida operatives inside Iraq,'' Phillips said. ''Most violence against the U.S. in Iraq is being committed by so-called dead-enders and Iraqis who resent the U.S. occupation.'' The al-Qaida presence has consistently been exaggerated, Phillips said. The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Jane Harman of California, said al-Qaida is in Iraq because of the American presence there. ''It's a good organizing tool,'' she said in an interview. ''One of their big targets is America. There's a large American presence in Iraq.'' Top U.S. commanders have previously said that the Iraqi resistance sees al-Qaida as an unwelcome presence in. For the most part, commanders have said, the conflict is a homegrown guerrilla war waged primarily by Saddam supporters and Iraqis angry over foreign military occupation.

The options are al qieda in NYC or al qieda in Baghdad. I'll take Baghdad for $100. Alex.

They also aren't getting Iraqis (Shi'ites) to join the bomb-fest.

They are gettting fewer anybodies to join tham at all.

That is no longer believed to be the case. The more we investigate, teh more links seem to pop up.
