Harry Reid, Spokesman for the Islamic State in Iraq: War is Lost

Wednesday, April 18, 2007, al Qaeda in Iraq, under the nom de guer Islamic State of Iraq, pulled off four suicide bombings in one day, killing 200 Iraqis, after being silent for almost five days after the suicide bombing in Parliament. Right on cue, al Qaeda's spokesman in the United States, gave a statement stating that the bombings were proof that the United States had lost the war and should withdraw:

Reid said he told President Bush on Wednesday he thought the war could not be won through military force, although he said the U.S. could still pursue political, economic and diplomatic means to bring peace to Iraq.

"I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and — you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows — (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, D-Nev.
