BAGHDAD, April 29 (Reuters) - The political battle in Washington over a Democratic plan to pull U.S. troops from Iraq is being exploited by al Qaeda, which has stepped up attacks to hasten a withdrawal, Iraq's foreign minister said on Sunday.
Hoshiyar Zebari said Iraq had become "entangled" in domestic politics in the United States, where there is growing impatience for progress in reconciling the country's warring sects.
The left and al-Qaeda desire the same outcome albeit for different reasons. Their common enemies are the administration and the Republicans. I have come to the conclusion that Democrats hate and fear the right even more than al Qaeda and therefor are NOT unwitting allies.
