Al-Qaida may want to be careful, unlike Bush Obama is popular worldwide so when they attempt. . .
. . .to insult them there is a greater chance of blow back, not from the US but from folks worldwide.

Bush is EXTREMELY UNPOPULAR worldwide so whenever they took their shots at him no one cared, but the entire world celebrated when Obama was elected and is pulling for him. Al-Qaida, which DOES CARE about the court of public opinion in some parts of the world might want to rethink its strategy of attacking Obama.

For his part I bet that unlike Bush Obama won't take the bait and will keep his administration officials from engaging in any kind of verbal spats with Al-Qaida.

1. I agree
The fact that Obama was against the Iraq war from the beginning is one of the things that the world community likes about him. Al-Qaida doesn't carry the same weight it did a few years ago. People are getting a little tired of being blown up.

2. I would imagine the first thing Obama said after hearing about this was...
... "we ready to go play pickup?"
