Has Al Qaeda Declared Victory Yet, Steve King?

More than a year ago, on March 7 2008, Representative Steve King of Iowa made a prediction about what would happen if Barack Obama was elected president. Starting off with a classic “now, I’m not a bigot, but…” introduction, he made this prophesy:

Republican Representative Steve King of IowaI don’t want to disparage anyone because of their race, their ethnicity, their name – whatever their religion their father might have been. I’ll just say this: When you think about the optics of a Barack Obama potentially getting elected President of the United States, I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world? What does it look like to the world of Islam? I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al Qaeda, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11 because they will declare victory in this War on Terror.

Barack Obama was elected President of the United States eight months ago, Rep. King. Has “the al Qaeda” declared victory in the War on Terror yet? Seems more like their representatives have been nonplussed and sputtering.
