So let me get this straight:
1) On Sunday, Bin Laden releases a tape saying Western citizens are now legitimate targets of his (gee, and we thought this had happened on 9/11; silly us) because they support governments that are conducting a “crusader war against Islam.” This is a repeat of what he’s already said about the Muslim governments, our “Allies” (sort of) in the War on Terror.
2) On Monday, three bombings killing at least 30 and injuring more than 115 occur.
And YET . . .
AP Reports that
A U.S. counterterrorism official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said no evidence has been found to link Bin Laden’s tape, released Sunday, to the attack.
Huh? Who is the anonymous counterterrorism official, and from which idiocy school did he/she graduate? Terrorists in Egypt would never work with Al-Qaeda, would they? Gee, in which country did Al-Qaeda brains Ayman Al-Zawahiri get his start?
Connect the dots. Or start serving Slurpees. (With apologies to our hard-working friends at 7-Eleven.)
