Here is video of former Nightline Anchor Ted Koppel telling the BBC that the attempted terror attack on Christmas Day has been an "absolute triumph for Al-Qaeda." Koppel believes there has been a terrible "over-reaction" to the attempt, which is exactly what Al-Qaeda wants.
Koppel said Obama's initial reaction to low-key it following the attack "was the right one." But Koppel said Obama was pushed into a stronger reaction by media and public expectations.
Koppel's comments are clearly his way of trying to defend Obama's initial reaction to the attempted attack and help him to fend off criticism. Somehow I don't think he would offer the same defense for George W. Bush. . . . (VIDEO)

Koppel must believe that Al Qaeda just wants to kill Republicans, conservatives and military personnel. What he fails to grasp is that they want to kill him and everyone else who isn’t Muslim.
Obamao has now found the perfect replacement for Gibbs.
I’ll be durned. Koppel’s still alive? ;-)
