Journalists Report Iraqi Captors Had Supported Bush for Re-election

Despite the Bush campaign's insinuations earlier this year that islamic terrorists supported John Kerry, there has never been any evidence of that at all. There have been reports, however, that terrorist supported George Bush for President. I've always been skeptical this, but now comes this AP report (via DarkSyde888) that one paricular group of Iraqi hostage-takers supports George Bush:

French journalists held hostage for four months in Iraq said their militant captors told them they wanted President Bush to win re-election.

In a four-page account of their ordeal, one of the reporters, Georges Malbrunot, also wrote that they saw several other hostages who were later decapitated. The journalists said their captors viewed foreign businessmen working in Iraq as their enemies.

One of the captors from the group calling itself the Islamic Army in Iraq said Bush's re-election would boost their cause, Malbrunot wrote in Friday's edition of Le Figaro, the French daily he works for.

"We want Bush because with him the American troops will stay in Iraq and that way we will be able to develop," Malbrunot cited the captor as saying.

Bush beat Democrat John Kerry to win the presidency last month.
