Colleen Graffy, U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for public diplomacy, told the BBC World Service the suicides were a "good PR move to draw attention."
"It does sound that this is part of a strategy in that they don't value their own life and they certainly don't value ours and they use suicide bombings as a tactic to further their Jihadi cause," she said.
Graffy coordinates efforts with Karen Hughes, a former top aide to
President George W. Bush who is now a special envoy charged with trying to improve the U.S. image abroad, especially in Islamic countries.
Yea.. glad to see that Karen Hughes really knows what she is doing and has the message all worked out for her subs.. good one.. I'm sure the rest of the world likes us so much better now!
