Khaled Abdul-Fattah Dawoud Mahmoud al-Mashhadani a/k/a Abu Shahid; Muntasir al-Jibouri; Abd Al Hadi; Al Zarqawi; Abu Laith al-Libi
Do you recognize the above names? You should. All of these men are Al Qaeda leaders killed or captured in Iraq by Coalition forces (except for Abu Laith al-Libi, who was killed in Pakistan). These are only some of the Al Qaeda fighters and leaders put out of action by the so-called "Bush war for oil" (or whatever other cutesy name the left is calling it now). To repeat, we are killing and capturing Al Qaeda. [For those of you who watch the "Today Show," Al Qaeda is the group that committed the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.]
All of these men would still be alive and well [and planning more attacks] if we had listened to Barack Hussein Obama and followed his advice at the start of this war.
These men will be replaced by other terrorists and terrorist leaders. Those terrorists will plan and plot more attacks. The United States will need to kill and capture them. Will Barack figure this out in time to stop the next wave of terrorist attacks? Does he deserve another chance to get it right? He can't simply throw the terrorists under the bus like he does with his supporters, family members, campaign workers, donors and advisors.
Or will he try to negotiate with them? Will there be a series of one-on-one meetings between Obama and the next group of Al Qaeda leaders? Will we see Al Qaeda visiting the White House over the next "8 to 10 years"?

I was reminded of these dead Al Qaeda leaders when I saw this Mike Ramirez cartoon posted at Lucianne.com. This cartoon is not simply a picture of what "might have been." This cartoon depicts what will happen in Iraq and/or elsewhere if we entrust the war on terror to Barack Obama.
