ABC’s Jake Tapper: President Obama, White House: Al Qaeda Is Racist

“Additionally, U.S. intelligence has indicated that al Qaeda leadership specifically targets and recruits black Africans to become suicide bombers because they believe that poor economic and social conditions make them more susceptible to recruitment than Arabs,” the official said. “Al Qaeda recruits have said that al Qaeda is racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations.”

“In short,” the official said, “al Qaeda is a racist organization that treats black Africans like cannon fodder and does not value human life.”

Except this time the terrorists are the Russians and the black suicide bombers are like the Ukrainians at Stalingrad as portrayed in the beginning battle scenes of Enemy at the Gates.

Okay so maybe it’s more of a movie parallel but I’m sure it’s an accurate one.
