The BBC says:

US Vice-President Dick Cheney has said that insurgents in Iraq have increased their attacks in order to influence the upcoming US mid-term elections.

He blamed a recent rise in violence on al-Qaeda and others trying to "break the will of the American people".

"They're very sensitive to the fact that we've got an election scheduled," he said, claiming the militants monitor US public opinion via the internet.

What a comedian. The Republican scum that run America must be desperate to be flogging this dead horse. Which party has benefitted most from terror in the past, in particular by playing this very same terrorist card again and again? Bush and Bin Laden are mutually beneficial for each other. Bush is Bin Laden's best recruiting agent. Bin Laden provides Bush with a universal bogeyman so that he can be "tough" on terror.
