These guys saw the movie "Toy Story" and thought . . .
"Wow, what an incredible documentary!"
This puts the lie to Ted Kennedy's claims that Iraq is a failure. Following the success in Sunday's elections (and nobody is credibly claiming that the elections were anything other than a success), the insurgents needed a media coup to rebound and regain their momentum and credibility as a force with which to be reckoned.
One would have thought that they would blow up a bomb outside an election place. They failed.
Maybe they could ambush a convoy carrying ballots from pollling places to provincial headquarters to be counted? Nope, they failed at that, too.
Perhaps they could pop off an IED and kill a few Americans for the camera? Nope, not spectacular enough. Roadside bombings are becomming passe in the media.
Maybe they could capture a foreigner and behead him/her for the cameras (an oldie but reliable goodie)? Nope, they couldn't even manage that.
Instead, they managed to kidnap G.I. Joe. Barbie is reported to be distraught.
In all seriousness, however, this is a good sign. The terrorists are living in an evnironment that is becoming increasingly suffocating. They have lost the support of the majority of Iraqis (based upon the polling numbers), and are not even adept enough to carry out a "routine" kidnapping.
When fear turns to farce, freedom is winning. The terrorists cannot succeed if they cannot inspire terror, and they cannot inspire terror if they appear inept.
