]"I found it interesting that on the tape, Iraq was mentioned, which is reminder that Iraq is a part of this war against extremists," Bush said. "If al-Qaida bothers to mention Iraq it's because they want to achieve their objectives in Iraq, which is to drive us out and to develop a safe haven. And the reason they want a safe haven is to launch attacks against America or any other ally."
"The tape is a reminder about the dangerous world in which we live, and it's a reminder that we must work together to protect our people against these extremists who murder the innocent in order to achieve their political objectives," he said. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070908/...JGiAYBdAlI2ocA
