al Qaida, Iran happy

Via Powerline:

Abu Ayyub al-Masri (aka Abu Hamza al-Muhaji), leader of al Qaeda in Iraq:

"The American people have put their feet on the right path by ... realizing their president's betrayal in supporting Israel," the terror leader said. "So they voted for something reasonable in the last elections." He did not explain his logic.


Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Friday called U.S. President George W. Bush's defeat in congressional elections a victory for Iran.

One analysis:

[T]he media strategy employed by al Qaeda has succeeded.

John Hinderaker:

Do the Democrats feel at all sheepish at having their victory hailed by al Qaeda? Do they feel any pressure to demonstrate to the American people that they are not a de facto ally of the terrorists? Not as far as we've noticed so far. But when the Democrats stop celebrating, they may want to pause long enough to consider a simple question: Why are the terrorists so happy that they won?

As Instapundit says...

Terrorism is an information war disguised as a military operation.

I've been told that Democrats aren't as good at "framing" their message. Maybe this is a failure to effectively frame their message to terrorists. (How would one correct that?) Or maybe the terrorists have effectively framed their message to Dems.
