Brian Ross at his ABC News blog (emphasis added):

Zawahri calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who Zawahri says cannot help.

What Zawahri actually said (again, emphasis added):

And I tell both the Republicans and Democrats: you are attempting in panic to find a way out of the disasters which surround you in Iraq and Afghanistan, but you are still thinking with the same idiotic mentality. Thus you try to negotiate with certain parties to secure your departure, although these parties don’t have a way out for you, and your attempts will only succeed in further frustrating you, Allah willing, because you aren’t negotiating with the real powers in the Islamic world. And it appears that you shall embark on a painful journey of failed negotiations, after which you shall come back -- Allah permitting -- with no other choice but to negotiate with the real powers.

Ross may have been the guy who first published Mark Foley's IMs, but somebody in the GOP still likes him enough to have spoon-fed him this spin, which suggests that Democrats might agree to make a separate peace with Pure Evil -- and Ross happily typed it up, just the way the GOP wants it.

And here's blogger after blogger after blogger on the right, spreading it around.
