Foreign Policy in Fantasyland Part 1

At some point, even Rush Limbaugh's most ardent fans hear him say something that prompts them to go "Wait... What? Why have I been listening to this guy?" Actually, I am not sure that is true. But as someone who wants to have faith in humanity, I believe it has to be, right? Anyway, I would think if it was true, this would have to have been the trigger for some of them:
Implying that an Obama re-election would mean progression towards the end of an Israeli state, Limbaugh then floated his theory: “What if Ayman al-Zawahiri and other al-Qaeda leaders gave up Osama bin Laden for the express purpose of making Obama look good? Giving Obama stature, political capital?”
This is either breathtakingly stupid or crassly dishonest. In Limbaugh's case I always assume the latter. But if you are listening to his show and that statement doesn't strike you as dubious, you may suffer from the former.
