Terrorists say 'parley'

CNN: "The leader of an umbrella organization for Iraqi insurgent groups is offering the United States a one-month truce to withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq and turn over its military bases "to the mujahedeen of the Islamic state."

In an audiotape posted on Islamic Web sites Friday, a speaker identified as Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Mujahideen Shura Council, said that if U.S. forces begin withdrawing from Iraq immediately and leave their heavy weaponry behind, "we will allow your withdrawal to complete without anyone targeting you with any explosive or anything else."

"We say to Bush not to waste this historic opportunity that will guarantee you a safe withdrawal," al-Baghdadi said on the audiotape

Yegads... So we're supposed to trust one guy who claims to have authority over the region, and then withdraw from a developing democracy? Incedentally, this is also the same guy that randomly beheads journalists and civilian contractors.
I say we kill them all, essentally stay the course.
As for leaving our heavy weps behind, over this countries dead body.
