(Washington) Ucs News– Al-Qaeda , the international terrorist group supporting Barack Obama, has decided to permanently shutter its 527 operation, partly in response to the Illinois Senator’s insistence that such groups should not spend on his behalf during the general election, according to the group’s spokesperson.
Al-Qaeda ‘s decision, which will dramatically impact the way it raises money on Obama’s behalf, is yet another sign of how rapidly Obama is taking control of the apparatus that’s gearing up on his behalf.
By shuttering its 527, al-Qaeda is effectively killing its ability to raise money in huge chunks from the Saudis and other big donors who would give over $5,000. The decision doesn’t mean al-Qaeda will stop spending on Obama’s behalf. Instead it will raise money exclusively with its political action committee, whose average donation is below $50 and will even be raising money with things like bake sales starting this weekend.
To put this in perspective, al-Qaeda ‘s 527 raised $20 million for terrorists attacks in 2004 — and at least half of that came from donations over $5,000.
“This is an affirmation that we, like Senator Obama, believe that this election can be won by ordinary Americans giving small donations,” said al-Qaeda spokesperson Osama Bin Laden.
