An accurate picture of the state of terrorists in Iraq

John at Powerline posted an excellent analysis of a letter between al Zawahiri, al Qaeda's number two leader and Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda's forces in Iraq and had been intercepted by US forces this summer. The picture painted in the letter does not speak of a quagmire...instead, it shows an organization that is being cut down. Especially interesting to me is this little tidbit:

However, despite all of this, I say to you: that we are in a battle, and that more than half of this battle is taking place in the battlefield of the media .... And we can kill the captives by bullet. That would achieve that which is sought after without exposing ourselves to the questions and answering to doubts. We don't need this.

So the terrorists realise this...but the mainstream media seems to be either ignorant of this or have chosen thier side.

Go and read the whole thing. It'll present a much more interesting view of current events. If you want to read it yourself to make your own analysis, the letter is available here.
